A Safety and Effectiveness Study of Acetaminophen Extended Release (3900 mg/Day) and Ibuprofen (1200 mg/Day) in the Treatment of Pain Associated With Ankle Sprains.
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of 1300 mg acetaminophen extended release given three times daily for nine days to that of 400 mg ibuprofen given three times daily for nine days for the signs and symptoms of (Grade I and Grade II) lateral ankle sprains.
The objective of this randomized, double-blind, parallel-group study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of 1300 mg acetaminophen extended release given three times daily for nine days to that of 400 mg ibuprofen given three times daily for nine days for the signs and symptoms of Grade I and Grade II lateral ankle sprains. The primary efficacy endpoint is the change from baseline (Day 1) to Day 4 in the subjects' pain upon walking. Safety assessments consist of the monitoring of adverse events and assessments of the ankle injury during the course of the study. Two hypotheses are examined using a step down approach. The first hypothesis is that acetaminophen extended release is not inferior to ibuprofen in relieving the pain associated with (Grade I or Grade II) lateral ankle sprains. If acetaminophen extended release is not inferior to ibuprofen in relieving the pain associated with Grade I or Grade II lateral ankle sprains, the second hypothesis is that acetaminophen extended release is superior to ibuprofen in relieving the pain associated with Grade I or Grade II lateral ankle sprains.
Two acetaminophen 650 mg extended release caplets, taken by mouth, three times a day for nine days or two ibuprofen 200 mg caplets, taken by mouth, three times a day for nine days

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Low Back Pain
Acute or chronic pain in the lumbar or sacral regions, which may be associated with musculo-ligamentous SPRAINS AND STRAINS; INTERVERTEBRAL DISK DISPLACEMENT; and other conditions.
Sprains And Strains
A collective term for muscle and ligament injuries without dislocation or fracture. A sprain is a joint injury in which some of the fibers of a supporting ligament are ruptured but the continuity of the ligament remains intact. A strain is an overstretching or overexertion of some part of the musculature.
Muscle Relaxants, Central
A heterogeneous group of drugs used to produce muscle relaxation, excepting the neuromuscular blocking agents. They have their primary clinical and therapeutic uses in the treatment of muscle spasm and immobility associated with strains, sprains, and injuries of the back and, to a lesser degree, injuries to the neck. They have been used also for the treatment of a variety of clinical conditions that have in common only the presence of skeletal muscle hyperactivity, for example, the muscle spasms that can occur in MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1991, p358)
Analgesic antipyretic derivative of acetanilide. It has weak anti-inflammatory properties and is used as a common analgesic, but may cause liver, blood cell, and kidney damage.
Enteropathogenic Escherichia Coli
Strains of ESCHERICHIA COLI characterized by attaching-and-effacing histopathology. These strains of bacteria intimately adhere to the epithelial cell membrane and show effacement of microvilli. In developed countries they are associated with INFANTILE DIARRHEA and infantile GASTROENTERITIS and, in contrast to ETEC strains, do not produce ENDOTOXINS.
The purpose of this study is to explore the pain-relieving effects and safety of two analgesic treatment regimens as compared to placebo in patients experiencing acute musculoskeletal pain...
This study examines the effect of kinesiology tape on proprioception and postural control in subjects with sub-acute and chronic ankle sprains/strain.
The objective of this observational study is to assess improvement of quality of life in the patients who are administered Tramadol 37.5mg/Acetaminophen 325mg tablets for 10~14 weeks accor...
Acetaminophen is commonly used to treat fever or pain. Your body clears acetaminophen by processing it in the liver. During the processing, some of the acetaminophen may bind to proteins i...
This study is being done to determine the systemic absorption of nasally inhaled acetaminophen (Tylenol®) versus orally ingested acetaminophen by comparing the serum drug concentrations o...
Supratherapeutic doses of the analgesic acetaminophen (paracetomol) are reported to promote social behavior in Swiss mice. However, we hypothesized that it might not promote sociability in other strai...
Ghrelin is a peptide that has protective effects on many tissues of the body. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects. Acetaminophen, a commonly used analgesic-antipyretic drug, has hepatoto...
Acetaminophen is commonly used during pregnancy. Experimental animal studies do not suggest increased malformations after therapeutic use of single-ingredient acetaminophen during pregnancy. Cohort st...
