  • They were divided into the test group which received shea butter, the control group which was treated with xylometazoline and the 'placebo' group which received white petroleum jelly B.P. 4 The results showed that nasal congestion was relieved more satisfactorily in the test group than in the other two groups [24].
  • Determination of xylometazoline in plasma and urine by gas chromatography using a fused-silica capillary column and an electron-capture detector [25].
  • Fifty-four healthy children (28 male), median age 9.5 years (range 5.9-16.0), performed full forced respiratory maneuvers through: 1) the mouth, 2) the nose, 3) the nose after application of an external stent (Breathe Right (BR) strip), and 4) the nose following instillation of xylometazoline [26].
  • There was no correlation between the percentage change in airflow (rhinomanometry) and the percentage change in blood flux (laser Doppler) following xylometazoline [27].
  • The assumption was made that the degree of swelling could be related to the degree of decongestive effect of xylometazoline, and measured by acoustic rhinometry [28].
