Our hypothesis is that even a single dose of paracetamol is sufficient to cause a measurable change in lung functions.
This trial aims to identify a possible effect of single dose paracetamol on lower airway function.
Asthma is a common inflammatory airway disease and its prevalence is on the rise all around the world, Most significantly in children under 5 years.
Paracetamol is one of the most common drugs used with children at thus age groups and several studies have proved a causative connection between exposure to paracetamol and asthma prevalence as well as other allergic conditions.
The mechanism is presumably by reduction of glutathione level, resulting in oxidative burst and formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS).
In addition, paracetamol maybe directly cytotoxic to pneumocytes if given in overdose.
The goal of this research is to identify and quantify the effect of single dose of paracetamol on lung functions of asthmatic and healthy subjects.
The study group will include 40 children aged 7-16 years, who are known to have asthma and a control group of 20 healthy children.
The children will be randomized to receive a dose of paracetamol or placebo, and lung functions will be measured by both spirometry and Fraction of expired Nitric Oxide (FeNO) test.
Each child will receive both paracetamol and placebo, randomly in to consecutive tests, thus children will serve as their own control.

The objective of this study is to investigate whether paracetamol, given at therapeutic doses (2g/day and 3 g/day), may potentiate the anticoagulant effect of warfarin.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the combination of paracetamol (acetaminophen) and other NSAIDs with or without weak opioids can give synergistic analgesic effect.
The aim of this observational study is to compare the use of an extended release paracetamol formulation with standard paracetamol in a cohort of Australian concessional patients with ost...
To investigate the safety and toxicity related to paracetamol treatment in children and adults with respectively SMA and CP.
Paracetamol is one of the most commonly used drugs in the world, indicated for the symptomatic treatment of fever and pain of mild to moderate. More precisely, it is a drug used to relieve...
Paracetamol is the analgesic most used by older people. The physiological changes occurring with ageing influence the pharmacokinetics (PK) of paracetamol and its variability. We performed a populatio...
Paracetamol is a relatively safe analgesia/antipyretic drug without the risks of addiction, dependence, tolerance, and withdrawal when used alone. However, when administrated in an opioid/paracetamol ...
Paracetamol, a widely used analgesic and antipyretic drug, is currently one of the most emerging pollutants worldwide. Besides its wide prevalence in the literature only several bacterial strains able...
Paracetamol overdosing may cause liver injury including fulminant liver failure due to generation of the toxic metabolites, N-acetyl-p-benzoquinone imine (NAPQI) and p-benzoquinone (p-BQ). Herein, the...
A deep blue dye (with the formula OC6H4NC6H4OH) used to detect AMMONIA in a common test called the Berthelot's reaction and to detect PARACETAMOL by spectrophotometry.
Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.
Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
Drugs that are used to treat asthma.
A beta-adrenergic agonist used in the treatment of asthma and bronchospasms.
Asthma is caused by inflammation of small tubes, called bronchi, which carry air in and out of the lungs. If you have asthma, the bronchi will be inflamed and more sensitive than normal. When you come into contact with something that irritates your...
