Cochrane review: oral paracetamol for cancer pain

20th December 2017

This new review (last published as part of a review with NSAIDs in 2005) has been published in full on-line. The authors conclude that there is no evidence to support or refute the use of paracetamol alone, and no high-quality evidence for the use of paracetamol in combination with opioids, to treat cancer pain as per the first two steps on the WHO cancer pain ladder.
