This is an open label, in-use study to assess the warming sensation, acceptability and local tolerability of paracetamol 500 mg + pseudoephedrine 30 mg syrup, given as a single dose in subjects suffering from symptoms of an upper respiratory tract infection. The purpose is to evaluate the acceptability concerning a warming sensation effect and its potential benefit in the target population.
The primary objective is to assess the warming sensation caused by the excipient IFF flavor 316 282, in a syrup containing paracetamol 500 mg + pseudoephedrine 30 mg per 30 ml syrup. The syrup contains (0.15% w/v) warming flavor.
The Secondary Objectives are to assess subject acceptability of the syrup and the safety and tolerability of the syrup. The study will be run in fifty-six (56) subjects suffering from symptoms of an upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) for 7 days or less, e.g. nasal congestion associated with colds and flu symptoms such as pain, headache and/or fever. Subjects must have one or more symptoms per category:
- mild to moderate body pain, headache, fever or sore throat
- nasal congestion (blocked nose) with or without rhinorrhea (runny nose) or sneezing Adolescents will be included in the study population
