Pilot Study of Pharmacology of Paracetamol Administered Per-oral Mucosa

Paracetamol is the centrally acting analgesic most commonly used in the world, indicated for the symptomatic treatment of fever and pain in mild to moderate. It comes in different formulations for oral, intravenous and rectal. The IV route allows rapid passage of paracetamol in the systemic arterial circulation and thus the brain, faster distribution evidenced a higher plasma concentration compared with oral and rectal. However the IV route also has disadvantages well known risks iatrogenic perfusion is an invasive lengthy, unpleasant and painful.

The way per-Albus not to date used for the administration of paracetamol. It is a path nonetheless very interesting for the rapid absorption of drugs such as nitrates used in angina pectoris, as it seeks a highly vascular area (the floor of the tongue or gingival groove) and allows a very rapid action. Furthermore, the terminal per-oral mucosa, less restrictive than IV administration and faster than oral administration, requires a simple medical gesture without special surveillance after administration, produces no pain or risk of infection for the patient (in contrast to the IV). It is interesting to test a new dosage form per-oral mucosa of paracetamol and compare pharmacological level (pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics) with the only dosage form of reference used by the IV route.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.
