Abstract
Objective: To evaluate palatability of antimicrobial drugs in Indian healthy adult human volunteers. Design: In a taste test, four antimicrobial agents cefpodoxime (pineapple flavour), erythromycin estolate (orange flavour), cefixime (banana flavour) and ofloxacin (mint flavour) were compared with quinine as positive control. Subjects: 24 healthy male volunteers were selected based on pre- study training. Intervention: Study was approved by IRB and informed consent was obtained from all volunteers. Palatability was determined using a single blind taste test of four flavoured antimicrobial agents. After each drug administration (sip and spit), volunteers were asked to rate palatability using visual analogue scale (VAS) incorporating a facial hedonic scale at every 5 minutes upto 0.50 hours using a one-way analysis of variance for repeated measures. Results: All volunteers were young males 25.4?5.7 years (mean ? SD) with normal BMI (22?1.7). The mean palatability scores for quinine, cefpodoxime, erythromycin, cefixime and ofloxacin were 1.08?0.83, 3.04?2.46, 4.13?2.58, 8.54?0.88 and 6.50?2.45 respectively. All antibiotics were more palatable when compared with Quinine (p<0.001). Amongst the four antibiotics, cefixime was the most palatable (p<0.001) and cefpodoxime was least palatable (p<0.001). 100% subjects felt quinine was bitter and cefixime was sweet. Conclusion: Current study, consistent with the literature has demonstrated the utility of palatability assessment using VAS with a facial hedonic scale in an Indian context.
