Anti-inflammatory agents that are non-steroidal in nature. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions.They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis accounts for their analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions; other mechanisms may contribute to their anti-inflammatory effects.

Dose-loading with hydroxychloroquine improves the rate of response in early, active rheumatoid arthritis: a randomized, double-blind six-week trial with eighteen-week extension. (1/7426)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the usefulness of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) dose-loading to increase the percentage of responders or rate of response in treating rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: Two hundred twelve patients with early RA (mean duration 1.5 years) were enrolled in a 24-week trial. Patients were stabilized with 1,000 mg naproxen/day and then began a 6-week, double-blind trial comparing treatment with HCQ at 400 mg/day (n = 71), 800 mg/day (n = 71), and 1,200 mg/day (n = 66), followed by 18 weeks of open-label HCQ treatment at 400 mg/day. RESULTS: All patients had mild, active disease at the time of initiation of HCQ treatment (31-43% rheumatoid factor positive; no previous disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs; mean swollen joint count 8.6-10.4). Based on the Paulus criteria, response during the 6-week double-blind portion of the study was 47.97%, 57.7%, and 63.6% in the 400 mg/day, 800 mg/day, and 1,200 mg/day groups, respectively (P = 0.052). Discontinuations for adverse events were dose related (3 in the 400 mg/day group, 5 in the 800 mg/day group, 6 in the 1,200 mg/day group). Most involved the gastrointestinal (GI) system, with the background naproxen treatment possibly contributing. Ocular abnormalities occurred in 17 of 212 patients (8%) but were not dose related. CONCLUSION: Dose-loading with HCQ increased the degree of response at 6 weeks in this group of patients with early, predominantly seronegative RA. Adverse GI events were dose related, while adverse ocular events were not.  (+info)

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug-induced apoptosis in gastric cancer cells is blocked by protein kinase C activation through inhibition of c-myc. (2/7426)

Apoptosis plays a major role in gastrointestinal epithelial cell turnover, ulcerogenesis and tumorigenesis. We have examined apoptosis induction by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in human gastric (AGS) cancer cells and the role of protein kinase C (PKC) and apoptosis-related oncogenes. After treatment with aspirin or indomethacin, cell growth was quantified by MTT assay, and apoptosis was determined by acridine orange staining, DNA fragmentation and flow cytometry. The mRNA and protein of p53, p21waf1/cip1 and c-myc was detected by Northern and Western blotting respectively. The influence of PKC on indomethacin-induced apoptosis was determined by co-incubation of 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA). The role of c-myc was determined using its antisense oligonucleotides. The results showed that both aspirin and indomethacin inhibited cell growth and induced apoptosis of AGS cells in a dose- and time-dependent manner, without altering the cell cycle. Indomethacin increased c-myc mRNA and protein, whereas p53 and p21wafl/cip1 were unchanged. Down-regulation of c-myc by its antisense oligonucleotides reduced apoptosis induction by indomethacin. TPA could inhibit indomethacin-induced apoptosis and accumulate cells in G2/M. Overexpression of c-myc was inhibited by TPA and p21waf1/cip1 mRNA increased. In conclusion, NSAIDs induce apoptosis in gastric cancer cells which may be mediated by up-regulation of c-myc proto-oncogene. PKC activation can abrogate the effects of NSAIDs by decreasing c-myc expression.  (+info)

A prospective randomized study of megestrol acetate and ibuprofen in gastrointestinal cancer patients with weight loss. (3/7426)

The use of megestrol acetate in the treatment of weight loss in gastrointestinal cancer patients has been disappointing. The aim of the present study was to compare the combination of megestrol acetate and placebo with megestrol acetate and ibuprofen in the treatment of weight loss in such patients. At baseline, 4-6 weeks and 12 weeks, patients underwent measurements of anthropometry, concentrations of albumin and C-reactive protein and assessment of appetite, performance status and quality of life using EuroQol-EQ-5D and EORTC QLQ-C30. Thirty-eight and 35 patients (median weight loss 18%) were randomized to megestrol acetate/placebo or megestrol acetate/ibuprofen, respectively, for 12 weeks. Forty-six (63%) of patients failed to complete the 12-week assessment. Of those evaluable at 12 weeks, there was a decrease in weight (median 2.8 kg) in the megestrol acetate/placebo group compared with an increase (median 2.3 kg) in the megestrol acetate/ibuprofen group (P<0.001). There was also an improvement in the EuroQol-EQ-5D quality of life scores of the latter group (P<0.05). The combination of megestrol acetate/ibuprofen appeared to reverse weight loss and appeared to improve quality of life in patients with advanced gastrointestinal cancer. Further trials of this novel regimen in weight-losing patients with hormone-insensitive cancers are warranted.  (+info)

Pharmacology of LY315920/S-5920, [[3-(aminooxoacetyl)-2-ethyl-1- (phenylmethyl)-1H-indol-4-yl]oxy] acetate, a potent and selective secretory phospholipase A2 inhibitor: A new class of anti-inflammatory drugs, SPI. (4/7426)

LY315920 is a potent, selective inhibitor of recombinant human, group IIA, nonpancreatic secretory PLA2 (sPLA2). In a chromogenic isolated enzyme assay, LY315920 inhibited sPLA2 activity with an IC50 of 9 +/- 1 nM or 7.3 x 10(-6) mole fraction, which approached the stiochiometric limit of this assay. The true potency of LY315920 was defined using a deoxycholate/phosphatidylcholine assay with a mole fraction of 1.5 x 10(-6). LY315920 was 40-fold less active against human, group IB, pancreatic sPLA2 and was inactive against cytosolic PLA2 and the constitutive and inducible forms of cyclooxygenase. Human sPLA2-induced release of thromboxane A2 (TXA2) from isolated guinea pig lung bronchoalveolar lavage cells was inhibited by LY315920 with an IC50 of 0.79 microM. The release of TXA2 from these cells by N-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine or arachidonic acid was not inhibited. The i.v. administration of LY315920, 5 min before harvesting the bronchoalveolar lavage cells, resulted in the inhibition of sPLA2-induced production of TXA2 with an ED50 of 16.1 mg/kg. Challenge of guinea pig lung pleural strips with sPLA2 produced contractile responses that were suppressed in a concentration-dependent manner by LY315920 with an apparent KB of 83 +/- 14 nM. Contractile responses induced by arachidonic acid were not altered. Intravenous or oral administration of LY315920 to transgenic mice expressing the human sPLA2 protein inhibited serum sPLA2 activity in a dose-related manner over a 4-h time course. LY315920 is a potent and selective sPLA2 inhibitor and represents a new class of anti-inflammatory agent designated SPI. This agent is currently undergoing clinical evaluation and should help to define the role of sPLA2 in various inflammatory disease states.  (+info)

Characterization of the analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities of ketorolac and its enantiomers in the rat. (5/7426)

The marked analgesic efficacy of ketorolac in humans, relative to other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), has lead to speculation as to whether additional non-NSAID mechanism(s) contribute to its analgesic actions. To evaluate this possibility, we characterized (R,S)-ketorolac's pharmacological properties in vivo and in vitro using the nonselective cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitors [indomethacin (INDO) and diclofenac sodium (DS)] as well as the selective COX-2 inhibitor, celecoxib, as references. The potency of racemic (R,S)-ketorolac was similar in tests of acetic acid-induced writhing, carrageenan-induced paw hyperalgesia, and carrageenan-induced edema formation in rats; ID50 values = 0.24, 0. 29, and 0.08 mg/kg, respectively. (R,S)-ketorolac's actions were stereospecific, with (S)-ketorolac possessing the biological activity of the racemate in the above tests. The analgesic potencies for (R,S)-, (S)-, and (R)-ketorolac, INDO, and DS were highly correlated with their anti-inflammatory potencies, suggesting a common mechanism. (R,S)-ketorolac was significantly more potent than INDO or DS in vivo. Neither difference in relative potency of COX inhibition for (R,S)-ketorolac over INDO and DS nor activity of (S)-ketorolac at a number of other enzymes, channels, or receptors could account for the differences in observed potency. The distribution coefficient for (R,S)-ketorolac was approximately 30-fold less than for DS or INDO, indicating that (R,S)-ketorolac is much less lipophilic than these NSAIDs. Therefore, the physicochemical and pharmacokinetics properties of (R,S)-ketorolac may optimize the concentrations of (S)-ketorolac at its biological target(s), resulting in greater efficacy and potency in vivo.  (+info)

Reduction of sodium deoxycholic acid-induced scratching behaviour by bradykinin B2 receptor antagonists. (6/7426)

1. Subcutaneous injection of sodium deoxycholic acid into the anterior of the back of male ddY mice elicited dose-dependent scratching of the injected site with the forepaws and hindpaws. 2. Up to 100 microg of sodium deoxycholic acid induced no significant increase in vascular permeability at the injection site as assessed by a dye leakage method. 3. Bradykinin (BK) B2 receptor antagonists, FR173657 and Hoe140, significantly decreased the frequency of scratching induced by sodium deoxycholic acid. 4. Treatment with aprotinin to inhibit tissue kallikrein reduced the scratching behaviour induced by sodium deoxycholic acid, whereas treatment with soybean trypsin inhibitor to inhibit plasma kallikrein did not. 5. Although injection of kininase II inhibitor, lisinopril together with sodium deoxycholic acid did not alter the scratching behaviour, phosphoramidon, a neutral endopeptidase inhibitor, significantly increased the frequency of scratching. 6. Homogenates of the skin excised from the backs of mice were subjected to gel-filtration column chromatography followed by an assay of kinin release by trypsin from each fraction separated. Less kinin release from the fractions containing kininogen of low molecular weight was observed in the skin injected with sodium deoxycholic acid than in normal skin. 7. The frequency of scratching after the injection of sodium deoxycholic acid in plasma kininogen-deficient Brown Norway Katholiek rats was significantly lower than that in normal rats of the same strain, Brown Norway Kitasato rats. 8. These results indicate that BK released from low-molecular-weight kininogen by tissue kallikrein, but not from high-molecular-weight kininogen by plasma kallikrein, may be involved in the scratching behaviour induced by the injection of sodium deoxycholic acid in the rodent.  (+info)

The effect of streptomycin, oxytetracycline, tilmicosin and phenylbutazone on spermatogenesis in bulls. (7/7426)

To determine whether declining semen quality associated with health problems may be due to certain antibiotic or anti-inflammatory treatments, semen was collected 3 times per week for up to 42 d from 6 normal bulls after treatment with oxytetracycline, tilmicosin, dihydrostreptomycin, or phenylbutazone. No adverse effects on semen quality were observed.  (+info)

Pseudogout attack associated with chronic thyroiditis and Sjogren's syndrome. (8/7426)

A 66-year-old woman, diagnosed with chronic thyroiditis at age 63, presented with anorexia and fatigue. Therapy for the chronic thyroiditis consisted of levothyroxine sodium (100 microg/day). Her symptoms were attributed to the insufficient supply of levothyroxine sodium. Following a dosage increase to 150 microg/day, she suffered from an acute attack of pseudogout. Clinical features were complicated by Sjogren's syndrome, which appeared after treatment onset. Pseudogout was effectively treated by colchicine after administration of diclofenac sodium failed to alleviate the symptoms. Pseudogout is a recognized complication of thyroid replacement therapy, but association with Sjogren's syndrome has not been previously reported.  (+info)

Aspirin is generally regarded as a cause of gastric ulcer but the role of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents and paracetamol in the aetiology of peptic ulcer is unclear. To investigate this we conducted a case control study of 180 matched pairs of peptic ulcer patients and controls obtained from surgical and dermatology outpatient clinics. There were 95 gastric ulcer and 85 duodenal ulcer patients. A statistically and clinically association (relative risk = 5) was found between the regular use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents and gastric ulcer. There was also evidence of positive associations between gastric ulcer and aspirin containing preparations with or without non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents. By contrast, duodenal ulcer was unrelated to these drugs. Too few patients used paracetamol for any conclusion to be drawn on its role.. ...
All information about the latest scientific publications of the Clínica Universidad de Navarra. Hypersensitivity to aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
Objective. To determine whether race is a predictor of a patients likelihood of being prescribed selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors (COX-2s) versus other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) in Medicaid managed care plans (MCO).. Design. All medical and prescription claims for Medicaid MCO enrollees receiving at least one prescription for a COX-2 or NSAID between January 2000 and June 2002 were retrieved. Selected for study were adults claiming at least one COX-2 prescription or NSAID prescription with a minimum 30 days of supply after June 2000; having 60 total days of supply or more over the study period was also required for study inclusion. The probability of being prescribed a COX-2 was estimated as a logistic function of patient age, gender, race, city/suburban/rural residence, and history of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, chronic back pain, acute pains, gastrointestinal problems, use of anticoagulants or corticosteroids, and comorbidities.. Results. Of the 16,868 ...
The relative risk for use of the cyclo-oxygenase-2 inhibitors celecoxib, rofecoxib, and for other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs was assessed.. The doctors identified a total of 3083 cases of acute pancreatitis and 30,830 population controls.. For current use, the relative risk estimate for celecoxib was 1.4, and 1.3 for rofecoxib.. The overall relative risk for other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs was 2.7.. However, the team noted substantial variation in risk between the individual drugs.. The highest relative risk was for diclofenac, and the lowest for naproxen.. Dr Sorensens team concluded, Cyclo-oxygenase-2 selective inhibitors are associated with a lower risk of acute pancreatitis than most other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. ...
Selective cyclo-oxygenase 2 (COX 2) inhibitors, including celecoxib (Celebrex) and rofecoxib (Vioxx), are hypothesised to have a lower risk of gastrointestinal complications than traditional non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.1 In September 2000 the celecoxib long term arthritis safety study, better known as CLASS, was published in JAMA.2 This trial, widely cited and distributed, concluded that a COX 2 inhibitor was associated with a lower incidence of complications than traditional non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. What was much less widely publicised were criticisms that contradicted this conclusion.. CLASS was reported as a three arm trial comparing celecoxib 800 mg/day with ibuprofen 2400 mg/day and diclofenac 150 mg/day in osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Clinically relevant upper gastrointestinal ulcer complications (bleeding, perforation, or obstruction) and symptomatic ulcers during the first six months of treatment were described as the two main outcome measures, ...
It has been proposed that aspirin (ASA) and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)-induced urticaria (UR)/angioedema (AE) are mediated through inhibition of cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) enzymes. Therefore, drugs with COX-2 selectivity may be well tolerated in such patients. We investigated the safety of preferential COX-2 inhibitor meloxicam in subjects with UR or AE type intolerance reaction to classical ASA/NSAIDs. Subjects with reliable or documented history of UR/AE due to classical ASA/NSAIDs underwent a single-blinded, placebo-controlled oral challenge with a cumulative dose of 7.5 mg meloxicam on 2 separate days. One-quarter and three-quarter divided doses of placebo and the active drug were given at 1-h intervals. A total of 116 patients (86 women and 30 men, mean age 39.6 ± 12.7 years) were enrolled to the study. The rate of atopy was 25.9%. Mean duration of drug reaction was 87.4 ± 110.8 (1-720) months. Almost half of the patients were multi-reactors. The most comorbid ...
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, usually abbreviated to NSAIDs, are drugs with analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory effects - they reduce pain, fever and inflammation. The term non-steroidal is used to distinguish these drugs from steroids, which (among a broad range of other effects) have a similar eicosanoid-depressing, anti-inflammatory action. As analgesics, NSAIDs are unusual in that they are non-narcotic. NSAIDs are sometimes also referred to as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents/analgesics (NSAIAs) or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIMs). The most prominent members of this group of drugs are aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen partly because they are available over-the-counter in many areas. Paracetamol (acetaminophen) has negligible anti-inflammatory activity, and is strictly speaking not an NSAID.

Femoral fractures were induced via a three-point bending technique. NSAIDs were administered orally for 4 or 12 weeks. Control animals received no medication. In each group a minimum of six animals were killed at the following intervals: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 weeks postfracture. Fracture healing was determined by mechanical testing and histologic evaluation. The bending strength of each fractured femur was expressed as a percentage of the strength of the intact, contralateral femur. Histologic evaluation was performed on serial longitudinal sections stained with hematoxylin and eosin ...

Abstract: : Purpose: The degeneration of retinal neurons results in loss of vision. It has been known that Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) can protect the neuron from ischemic damage. The purpose of this study was to investigate the protective effect of NSAIDs in the rat retinal ischemia. Methods: Retinal ischemia in Sprague Dawley rats was induced by high intraocular pressure at 160 mmHg for 60 minutes after intra-ocular injection of saline, aspirin (5 to 20 mM), sulfasalazine (1 to 5 mM) or sulindac (0.01 to 0.1 mM). For morphological study, the retinas were embedded in epon 24 hours after ischemic injury. To determine neuronal survivorship in the retinal layers, the number of viable neurons was counted in 100µm X 25µm square and examined. Results: The intravitreal injections of aspirin, sulfasalazine or sulindac attenuated the ischemic neuronal degeneration in dose dependent. The protective effect of aspirin at concentration of 20 mM was observed to be 73%5.4 and 80%2.5 in ...
NOTE: The calculations below are standard scaling factors that would be used for the FDA. They do not take into account specific pharmacokinetics of individual agents which can only properly be done after gavage dosing.. HEDs were calculated as follows, using 100 ppm (100 μg/g diet) as an example. Rats, which eat 15 g food daily, would consume 1.5 mg drug; for a 250 g rat, the daily weight-based dose would be 6 mg drug/kg body weight. Dividing by the rat-to-human scaling factor of 6, the HED is 1 mg/kg body weight; for an 80 kg human this is 80 mg. Mice, which eat 4 g food daily, would consume 0.4 mg drug; for a 25 g mouse, the daily weight-based dose would be 16 mg drug/kg body weight. Dividing by the mouse-to-human scaling factor of 12, the HED is 1.33 mg/kg body weight; for an 80 kg human this is 106 mg.. Abbreviation: HED, human equivalent dose.. ...

Abstract: Amyloidosis is a clinical disorder caused by deposition of proteins that abnormally self-assemble into insoluble fibrils and impair organ function. More than 20 unrelated precursor proteins lose their native structure and misfold, leading to the formation of amyloid fibrils. The latter share cross-β core structure in vivo and in vitro and gain abnormal functions. Local amyloid deposition occurs in the central nervous system in Alzheimers disease (AD) and cerebral amyloid ...

Treatment and chemoprevention of NSAID-associated gastrointestinal complications Edward J Frech1,2, Mae F Go1,21GI Section, George E Wahlen Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center; 2Division of Gastroenterology, University of Utah School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, Utah, USAAbstract: The use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs has become ubiquitous worldwide and remains a common source of gastrointestinal morbidity. Antisecretory medications, particularly proton pump inhibitors, are effective in the treatment and prevention of NSAID-related gastrointestinal complications, including peptic ulcer disease and non-ulcer dyspepsia. A careful assessment of patients risk factors for developing NSAID-related gastrointestinal complications should be undertaken prior to initiation of any NSAIDs. Patients who are considered at risk for developing gastrointestinal complications should receive concurrent antisecretory medical therapy to minimize the risk for GI complications.Keywords: NSAIDs, peptic
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is strengthening an existing label warning that non-aspirin nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) increase the chance of a heart attack or stroke. Based on our comprehensive review of new safety information, we are requiring updates to the drug labels of all prescription NSAIDs. As is the case with current prescription NSAID labels, the Drug Facts labels of over-the-counter (OTC) non-aspirin NSAIDs already contain information on heart attack and stroke risk. We will also request updates to the OTC non-aspirin NSAID Drug Facts labels ...
NSAIDs (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like ibuprofen (Advil) and indomethacin may speed up the breakdown of cartilage in osteoarthritic joints. They might also inhibit tissue repair. But, not all studies show NSAIDs damage cartilage. It may depend on the specific NSAID. The best study Ive seen to date (and also published in a very reputable journal) found older adults (a group that commonly has osteoarthritis) who used NSAIDs including diclofenac, ibuprofen, naproxen, ketoprofen and piroxican for an extended period of time had higher risk of cartilage defects and nonsignificant loss of cartilage compared to nonusers.. Osteoarthritis is very common (athletes, older adults, those who are overweight, those who have been very active their whole life) and is wear and tear arthritis; symptoms include joint pain and stiffness..

Fortunately, therapeutic options for numerous conditions are available for horses, and new treatments continue to reach the market regularly. One noteworthy medication introduced over the past decade is diclofenac (trade name Surpass). A topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) approved in 2004, diclofenac now gives veterinarians the option to localize treatment of osteoarthritis to a specific joint instead of administering broad, systematic treatment.. Another recent addition to the equine NSAID arsenal is firocoxib (trade name Equioxx). A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent like phenylbutazone (bute) or flunixin meglumine (Banamine), this oral medication came to the U.S. market in 2007 for use in treatment of pain associated with osteoarthritis. Noted for being less harmful to the gastrointestinal tract, firocoxib has given veterinarians another option when treating horses with OA pain.. Gastric ulcers have been in the spotlight for the past few decades as a potentially insidious ...

BACKGROUND: A histamine-2 receptor antagonist (H2RA) is one of the common gastroprotective co-therapies used with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for the prevention or treatment of peptic ulcers (PUs). To date, no study has directly compared the prophylactic effectiveness between high-dose and low-dose H2RA. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to compare the effectiveness of high-dose versus low-dose H2RAs in the primary prophylaxis of PUs among short-term NSAID users. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted using the Clinical Data Analysis and Reporting System (CDARS) in Hong Kong. Patients aged 18 years or above who received a single prescription of oral NSAID with oral H2RA were identified within the study period (1 January 2009-31 December 2012). Patients with a history of or risk factors for PU in the corresponding 2 years prior to the index date (of the first NSAID prescription) were excluded. Log binomial regression analysis was used to calculate the relative risk of PU among

In ancient times, it was believed throughout the world that the root cause of ailments was the bodys buildup of toxins. This accumulation of toxins and incomplete processes of food in the gastrointestinal tract can be thought to be a source of decreased immunity. This concept of toxicity, food allergens and environmental toxic sources lead to a creation of immune complications, which in turn creates the many symptoms in patients suffering from arthritis. Natural therapy, including taking supplements and herbs, and taking care of your intestinal tract, can increase your chances of becoming symptom free. Its important to understand that taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents(NSAIDS) make the lining of your intestinal tract weaker, thus, giving you leaky gut which leads to worsening of disease. The intestinal tracts position and processes are integral in keeping your body healthy because it is the bodys first line of defense. Keeping awareness of what can induce GI inflammation will be ...

Drugs a) NSAIDs. The cornerstone of DJD treatment is Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS). They have both anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain killing) effects. All NSAIDs have the potential to cause side effects in some animals. These include: - Gastro-intestinal side effects such as vomiting and diarrhoea can occur. More seriously ulceration of the gastro-intestinal tract can occur. This causes vomit with blood in it, black tar like faeces (malaena), and can be fatal if left untreated. - Exacerbation of degradation of the articular cartilage by increasing cartilage breakdown or by reducing glycosaminoglycan synthesis. Thus, the drug that is most commonly used for treating DJD has been shown to speed up the progress and deterioration of the disease. - Kidney toxicity. Nsaids can be damaging to kidneys especially where there is existing kidney disease or when there is risk of low blood pressure such as dehydration, heart disease, general anaesthetic - Affect blood clotting - Liver ...
Although the disease cannot be cured, anti-inflammatory drugs, through pain reduction, often allow improvement in sleep and general well-being, resulting in a greater ability to carry out exercises. Analgesics themselves have a very little role, if any, in this condition. The symptoms-related inflammation and therefore non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are appropriate. However, for those individuals who cannot tolerate non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, usually with gastrointestinal complications, a pure analgesic may be the only alternative. This is why it is important to take this medication when the stomach contains food, to protect the stomach lining from any damage. However, these drugs are not habit-forming. There are over twenty different non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which come in many different shapes and sizes. The best one is a slow release agent which can be taken on a single occasion per day, usually at night, allowing improved sleep, less morning stiffness and less ...

Several reports indicate that mesalazine (5-aminosalicylic acid or 5-ASA) is a promising candidate for the chemoprevention of Colo-Rectal Cancer (CRC) due to its ability to reach the purpose, yet avoiding at the same time the side effects that are usually determined by prolonged administrations of Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs. This activity of 5-ASA is probably the consequence of a number of effects determined on colon cancer cells and consisting of reduced proliferation, increased apoptosis and activation of cell cycle checkpoints. A recent observation has suggested that these effects could be mediated by the capacity of 5-ASA to interfere with the nuclear translocation of beta-catenin, in turn responsible for the inhibition of its transcription activity. The aim of our study was to better characterize the molecular mechanism by which 5-ASA inhibits the beta-catenin signaling pathway. To address this issue we assessed, by means of the Affymetrix microarray methodology, the transcriptome
Clinical experience likewise suggests that some dogs and cats may appreciably benefit from chondroitin administration and others not at all. It is difficult to anticipate which animals are most likely to respond. Given the potential for benefit and the extremely low risk of any adverse side effects, chondroitin supplementation is always recommended for animals with joint pain. Where a benefit is seen, doses of more expensive and potentially deleterious drugs may be reduced, including the NSAIDs (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as aspirin, carprofen and meloxicam. Because chondroitin protects mucosal barriers, it may not only enhance pain relief in animals administered NSAIDS, but help protect their intestinal tracts from ulcerations which are occasionally seen as a side effect of NSAID use.. Research in laboratory animals suggests that chondroitin dissolved in water before administration is more effective than when administered within a capsule.. ...
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are used to relieve pain and fever and to reduce swelling and inflammation caused by injury or diseases such as arthritis. Aspirin, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, and naproxen are commonly used NSAIDs. NSAIDs may cause side effects. The most common are stomach upset, heartburn, and nausea. NSAIDs may irritate the stomach lining. If the medicine upsets your stomach, you can try taking it with food. But if that doesnt help, talk with your doctor to make sure its not a more serious problem.. Frequent or long-term use of NSAIDs may lead to stomach ulcers or high blood pressure. They can also cause a severe allergic reaction. ...
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been implicated in the aetiology of acute renal failure (ARF), but epidemiological studies examining this association have produced disparate results. We conducted a case-control study using a purposebuilt record-linkage database for a population of 420 600 patients, resident in Tayside since May 1990. Patients (n = 207) hospitalized with a diagnostic code for ARF between 1990 and 1992 had their diagnosis validated by a renal physician. Six community controls and two hospital controls, matched for age and sex, were generated for each of these cases. Exposure to dispensed oral NSAIDs, topical NSAIDs and aspirin during the 90 days prior to the index date were investigated (recent exposure), as was exposure at any time since January 1989 (previous exposure). The most significant associations were modelled using conditional logistic regression. When community controls were used, recent exposure to NSAIDs and previous exposure to aspirin were ...

Sonia Hernández-Díaz and Luis García Rodríguez analysed two anonymous databases of patient information, the General Practice Research Database in the UK and the Base de Datos para la Investigación Farmacoepidemiológica en Atención Primaria in Spain, to characterise patients taking low-dose aspirin as a preventive measure against heart attack, in terms of major gastrointestinal risk factors. Risk factors for upper gastrointestinal tract complications include advanced age, male sex, prior ulcer history and use of other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The researchers then estimated the excess gastrointestinal risk caused by aspirin use in patients with and without these risk factors. Hernández-Díaz and García Rodríguez find that 88% of aspirin users are over 60 and that 52-54% of them are male. From 3.8% to 5.9% of them have a history of gastrointestinal ulcer. Across all risk groups, aspirin use is responsible for an extra 5-6 cases of upper gastrointestinal tract ...
A new study found that regular aspirin use is significantly associated with an increased incidence of neovascular AMD, a leading cause of blindness in older people.. Researchers at the Center for Vision Research from the Westmead Millennium Institute for Medical Research (WMI), a close affiliate of the University of Sydney, have found that regular aspirin consumption is associated with an increased risk of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) - a leading cause of blindness in older people.. The research shows that the risk appears to be independent of a history of smoking, which is also a known preventable risk factor for AMD.. Aspirin is one of the most widely used medications in the world with more than 100 billion tablets consumed each year. Aspirin is commonly used in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, such as myocardial infarction (heart attack) and ischemic stroke.. While a five-year European study published last year suggested that regular aspirin use (defined as once ...

Among study participants who reported whether or not they used aspirin regularly: 18 percent used aspirin, 24 percent used non-aspirin NSAIDs, and 16 percent used acetaminophen. The researchers determined that participants who reported daily aspirin use had a 20 percent lower risk of ovarian cancer than those who used aspirin less than once per week. For non-aspirin NSAIDs, which include a wide variety of drugs, the picture was less clear: the scientists observed a 10 percent lower ovarian cancer risk among women who used NSAIDs at least once per week compared with those who used NSAIDs less frequently. However, this finding did not fall in a range that was significant statistically. In contrast to the findings for aspirin and NSAIDs, use of acetaminophen, which is not an anti-inflammatory agent, was not associated with reduced ovarian cancer risk ...

A form of ibuprofen called flarin is being studied in Britain to see if it is effective for treating COVID-19 respiratory symptoms caused by the coronavirus.. Also called lipid ibuprofen, flarin has anti-inflammatory effects and is designed to shield the stomach from irritation when taken.. The study, LIBERATE Trial in COVID-19, aims to test flarin on 230 people who have been hospitalized due to COVID-19 and have acute respiratory failure. Only patients who are 18 or older are eligible.. COVID-19 patients who have shown hypersensitivity to other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) do not qualify for the study.. Ibuprofen received attention in March, when French Health Minister Olivier Veran tweeted that NSAIDS, which include ibuprofen, could aggravate COVID-19 symptoms.. Since then, the World Health Organization, European Medicines Agency and other groups said there was not enough evidence to prove ibuprofen would worsen COVID-19 symptoms..

The only similarity that the two has is that they both have side effects and they both have the capacity of relieving pain. Take not, they relieve only pain. The similarity ends in here. On the other hand, the difference between the two is a lot.. Ibuprofen may treat the inflammation and pain even though it needs a larger dosage to treat the former one. The paracetamol, however, can treat the pain and nut the inflammation. it has the capacity to do so but there is a need for larger dosage, which may cause harm.. Both ibuprofen and paracetamol have their own share of side effects. The ibuprofen, just like any other Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs may impose ulcer, cardiovascular illnesses, and a number of allergic reactions. On the other hand, paracetamol may cause the liver to get damage and even asthma.. If you observe, paracetamol is less effective than the ibuprofen. However, it has lesser side effects. On the other hand, the long-term dependence or the overdose on paracetamol may be ...
Tony Sampson, Mercer University College of Pharmacy It is suggested that psoriatic arthritis is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease that targets both skin and nail and affects approximately 0.005 percent of the general population. [1] According to The American College of Rheumatology, current treatment for psoriatic arthritis includes non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, disease modifying anti-rheumatic…
A concomitant use of metformin with forms of sulphonyl carbamide and insulin can result in hypoglycemia. Ethanol increases a risk of lacticacidemia, therefore you should avoid consuming alcohol. Cimetidine (Tagamet) is able to reduce the elimination of metformin from the body which results in increasing of the metformin amount in the blood by 40%. This may intensify side effects of metformin such as lacticemia. Derivatives of MAO inhibitors, β2-adrenergic receptor agonists, angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors, cyclophosphamide, clonbratum, oxytetracycline, non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can potentiate the hypoglycemic effect of metformin. Chlorpromazine neuroleptic inhibits insulin release which can lead to the increasing of the metformin dosage applied only in case of total controlling of glucose level in the blood serum ...
A controlled release pharmaceutical composition contains a number of spheroids, the spheroids containing a water-insoluble drug dispersed in a controlled release matrix. The matrix contains between 70% and 99.5% (by weight) of microcrystalline cellulose, between 0.5% and 4% (by weight) of a cellulose derivative and, optionally, up to 26% of a sugar or a sugar alcohol. The water insoluble drug must dissolve in water (pH 5) at 20 C. to a concentration of less than 1.0 mg ml-1, preferably less than 0.5 mg ml-1. Preferred drugs are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents, especially fenprofen calcium, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, naproxen, diclofenac sodium, fenbufen, flurbiprofen, indomethancin, oxyphenbutazone, phenylbutazone or piroxicam.
Ketorolac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent demonstrating analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity. Ketorolac inhibits the cyclo-oxygenase enzyme essential for biosynthesis of prostaglandins. Ketorolac has been shown to reduce prostaglandin levels in the aqueous humour after topical ophthalmic administration.
Microencapsulation has become a common technique in the production of controlled release dosage forms. Many results have been reported, concerning the use of alginate beads as controlled release drug formulations. Alginate has a unique gel-forming property in the presence of multivalent cations, in an aqueous medium. Ibuprofen is an excellent analgesic and antipyretic, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent with a high therapeutic index. Formulation of ibuprofen in beads could reduce its gastric ulcerogenicity. Hence, in this study the formation of Ca-alginate ibuprofen beads, through ionotropic gelation has been investigated. For this purpose, different cross- linking agents including: Ca2+, Ba2+, Mn2+, Co2+, Sn2+ and Pb2+, were used for bead preparation. Next, characterization of the beads, size distribution, encapsulation efficiency of ibuprofen within the beads, the bead swelling and the drug release kinetic were investigated. Results showed that only Ca ion is suitable for the formation of ibuprofen
Flurbiprofen(Ansaid) generic is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent (NSAIA), prescribed for pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness caused by osteoarthritis (arthritis caused by a breakdown of the lining of the joints) and rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis caused by swelling of the lining of the joints), inflammation of eye, dysmenorrhea. It prevents the production of irritant chemicals that cause pain, fever, and inflammation.
Estimates indicate 50% of all women worldwide experience primary dysmenorrhea during or around the time of their period, and some prevalence rates indicate that as many as 90% of all women experience dysmenorrhea at some time in their lives. In the United States, it has been estimated that 100 million work hours are lost per year due to dysmenorrhea, which could translate into $2 billion in lost work productivity.. More than half of all women who experience primary dysmenorrhea indicate that their pain is moderate to severe in nature. Multiple treatments have been used throughout recent history to ameliorate dysmenorrhea, including herbal supplements, aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents, prescription pain medications and oral contraceptives.. In keeping with our dedication to developing pharmaceutical agents to treat diseases and disorders of women, FemmePharma Global Healthcare, Inc. is pursuing research and development of novel drug compounds to treat both primary dysmenorrhea and ...
Purpose: : To investigate whether the ocular analgesic effects of nepafemac, a non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug, are mediated by a blockade of sodium currents in corneal peripheral endings of mouse trigeminal ganglion neurons. Methods: : Whole-cell patch-clamp recordings of sodium currents were made from adult mice trigeminal ganglion neurons. Neurons were isolated by a mechano-enzymatic dissociation procedure and kept in culture for 24-48 h. All recordings were performed at room temperature in small to medium size neurons. Drugs were applied by a gravity perfusion system. The effects of nepafenac and its active metabolite amfenac were compared with equivalent doses of diclofenac. Results: : Nepafenac (1-50 µM) had no effect on sodium currents. The active metabolite, amfenac (50 µM), produced a transient enhancement followed by a slow, modest decline, that did not reverse upon wash of the drug. In contrast, diclofenac (50 µM) produced a robust, reversible inhibition of sodium currents. ...
A new study has found that long-duration regular use of aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen) may be associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. Use of aspirin and other NSAIDs has been consistently associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer in epidemiological studies, and aspirin reduced risk of colorectal polyp recurrence in two randomized trials. There has also been some evidence from laboratory and epidemiological studies that NSAIDs might influence prostate carcinogenesis, although the association is unclear. To determine whether use of NSAIDs is associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer, Eric J. Jacobs, Ph.D., of the American Cancer Society in Atlanta, and colleagues studied more than 70,000 men participating in the American Cancer Societys Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort. During the follow-up from 1992 to 1993 through August 2001, 4,853 cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed among these men. Current use of ...

About SIS Shoulder impingement syndrome (SIS) is a common cause of shoulder pain and dysfunction and is typically caused by an impingement of the rotator cuff tendon. Persistent shoulder pain is a common reason for consulting with a primary care physician. Shoulder pain in adults aged ,70 years is estimated to be between 7% and 27%. The goals of treatment are to reduce pain and improve function so patients may fully participate in physical rehabilitation. In addition to physical therapy, the two most common medications used to treatment pain in SIS are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) and corticosteroid injections. About Synera Synera (lidocaine 70 mg/tetracaine 70 mg) topical patch is a combination amide and ester local anesthetic topical patch indicated for use on intact skin to provide local dermal analgesia for superficial venous access and superficial dermatological procedures such as excision, electrodessication and shave biopsy of skin lesions.

[abstract] American Chemical Society National Meeting, Philadelphia, PA, 8/22-26/2004, Picogram No. 67, Abstract No. 124. Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: Phenylbutazone (PBZ) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent that is sometimes used in an off-label manner by livestock producers. No withdrawal period has been established for phenylbutazone and no marker compound or tissue exists for PBZ in cattle. The objective of this study was to identify PBZ metabolites in cattle and to determine the identity of PBZ related residues in tissues. Urine samples were filtered, chromatographed, and metabolites analyzed by quadrapole time-of-flight MS. Tissue residues were extracted prior to analysis. Parent phenylbutazone was the major excretory product in cattle urine. Two ring-hydroxylated (phenolic) and three metabolites ...
Pharmaceutical marketing also puts great pressure on physicians to use new products. The medical journal Hospital Practice pointed out that pharmaceutical company competition leads to very aggressive promotion and inundation of the physician with data supporting the use of each new drug. Such marketing may dilute opposing scientific information that is not as well publicised. Ultimately drugs may be withdrawn, but only after substantial harm has been done. For example, benoxaprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent (NSAID) was introduced and heavily marketed in 1982, but then withdrawn after cases of fatal liver toxicity were reported in Great Britain. Zomepirac sodium was also aggressively marketed as a safe analgesic, but withdrawn after a year and numerous reports of fatal anaphylaxis17. The cardiac drugs flecainide and encainide, heavily promoted to control abnormal heart rhythms, were then withdrawn years later after scientific studies showed they caused fatal arrythmias and that ...
NSAIDs May Prevent the Development of Colorectal Cancer after Polyp Removal This post focuses on a recent study published in the British Medical Journal that suggests that NSAIDs may help prevent colorectal cancer after polyp removal - This post goes into more detail on the study. Frank Magliochetti Taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may prevent the recurrence of advanced neoplasia, a type of polyp that is the precursor of colorectal cancer, after the surgical removal of pre-existing polyps. Recurrence rates of benign polyps and advanced neoplasia are quite high, so clinicians are eager to find easy-to-follow treatments to reduce recurrence. A team of scientists from across the United States recently collaborated with Mayo Clinic researchers to determine how well NSAIDs, aspirin and other supplements prevent the recurrence of precancerous or cancerous polyps. The results of the study, published in the British medical journal BMJ suggest NSAIDs may offer the greatest ...

Women who take aspirin regularly may have a reduced risk of breast cancer. However, previous studies have reported mixed results-some suggest risk is lowered with aspirin while others do not see a protective effect. Few of these studies have looked at whether this potential benefit of aspirin is linked to specific types of breast cancer. This study found a modest reduction in breast cancer risk for women who took a low-dose aspirin at least three times per week, but only for one subtype of breast cancer. Women who took aspirin were less likely to develop ER/PR-positive/Her2- negative breast cancer, the most common type of breast cancer. This study found no breast cancer risk reduction for women who used regular-dose aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). (8/29/17)
Background: Many patients who have had upper gastrointestinal bleeding continue to take low-dose aspirin for cardiovascular prophylaxis or other non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for musculoskeletal pain. It is uncertain whether infection with Helicobacter pylori is a risk factor for bleeding in such patients. Methods: We studied patients with a history of upper gastrointestinal bleeding who were infected with H. pylori and who were taking low-dose aspirin or other NSAIDs. We evaluated whether eradication of the infection or omeprazole treatment was more effective in preventing recurrent bleeding. We recruited patients who presented with upper gastrointestinal bleeding that was confirmed by endoscopy. Their ulcers were healed by daily treatment with 20 mg of omeprazole for eight weeks or longer. Then, those who had been taking aspirin were given 80 mg of aspirin daily, and those who had been taking other NSAIDs were given 500 mg of naproxen twice daily for six months. The patients in ...

Background: Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is a primary immune disorder associated with hypogammaglobulinemia, recurrent infections and autoimmune diseases. CVID patients are frequently in contact with infectious pathogens leading to the activation of innate immunity through Toll-like receptors (TLR) affecting adaptive immunity. The aim of the present study was to test the immunomedulatory effect of small molecule G2013, a novel designed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent in CVID. Materials and Methods: After blood sampling from 16 CVID patients and 16 age- and sex-matched healthy controls, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were isolated and treated with/without lipopolysaccharide (LPS), lipopolyteichoic acid (LTA), and G2013. Assessing the immunomodulatory effect of G2013, flowcytometry was done for quantify the protein expression of TLR2 and TLR4. Gene expressions of signaling molecules involved in the TLR2 and TLR4 pathways were assessed by real-time PCR. ELISA performed
To evaluate glucose metabolism and/or insulin resistance (IR) in 96 patients with Fibromyalgia (FM), associated or not to cognitive impairment. We investigated glucose metabolism in 96 FM patients. Enrolled patients were divided into two groups: 48 patients with memory deficit (group A) and 48 without memory deficit (control group). We evaluated glucose and insulin levels after a 2 h-Oral-Glucose-Tolerance-Test (2 h-OGTT) and insulin resistance (IR) by the homeostasis model assessment formula (HOMA). Body Mass Index (BMI), waist-to-hip-ratio (WHR), anxiety level, fasting plasma insulin and Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory agents use were higher in patients with FM with memory impairment; while age, sex, waist circumference, education level, fasting plasma glucose, glycate hemoglobin, triglycerides, blood lipid profile, C- Reactivity-Protein (CRP), blood pressure and smoking habits were similar in both groups ...

Pel-Ebstein fever, also known as Ebstein-Cardarelli fever, is a rarely seen condition noted in patients with Hodgkins lymphoma in which the patient experiences fevers which cyclically increase then decrease over an average period of one or two weeks. A cyclic fever may also be associated with other conditions, but it is not called Pel-Ebstein fever unless the fever is associated with Hodgkins. The cause is currently unknown although speculation centers on host immune response - particularly the cyclical release of cytokines, lymph node necrosis, and damaged stromal cells. Treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents or treatment of the underlying Hodgkins (usually with chemotherapy) will help the symptoms. The condition is named after Wilhelm Ebstein and P.K. Pel who both published papers in 1887 noting the phenomenon. Both doctors published in the same journal, though Pel published first by several months. Interestingly, a long-term dispute persisted between Pel and Ebstein on the ...

In a prospective cohort study reported in The Lancet Oncology, Melissa A. Merritt, PhD, of the University of Hawaii Cancer Centers Epidemiology Program, and colleagues found evidence that recent use of aspirin or nonaspirin nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) after diagnosis appears to improve ovarian cancer-specific survival.. The study involved data from the prospective Nurses Health Study (NHS) and Nurses Health Study II (NHSII) whose participants have completed biennial questionnaires since 1976 and 1989. Between June 1976 and May 2012 for the NHS and between June 1989 and May 2013 for NHSII, a total of 1,789 participants were diagnosed with epithelial ovarian cancer and 1,143 (64%) were eligible for inclusion in the current study; of these, 1,031 (90%) were included in the prediagnosis exposure analysis and 964 (84%) in the postdiagnosis analysis. Eligible participants had confirmed invasive stage I to III epithelial ovarian cancer and had data available on analgesic use. The ...

Background: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been known to cause renal dysfunction in healthy patients and more pronounced renal effects in patients with cirrhosis and ascites. The use of NSAIDs have been associated with hepatorenal syndrome, a serious and often fatal complication associated with acute decline in renal function in the context of cirrhosis. However, renal safety of selective cyclo-oxygenase-2 (COX-2) and non-selective COX inhibitors has not been well delineated in current research with regards to patients with cirrhosis. This literature review seeks to compare the renal safety of selective and non-selective COX inhibitors in patients with cirrhosis. Methods: A thorough multi-database search was conducted using various combinations of keywords. Each study was evaluated using the Grading of Recommendations, Assessments, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) system. Results: Selective COX-2 inhibitor did not produce statistically significant decrements in renal function,
There are many things that can lead to a lack of iron in the body. In men and post-menopausal women, the most common cause is bleeding in the stomach and intestines. This can be caused by a stomach ulcer, stomach cancer, bowel cancer, or by taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).. In women of reproductive age, heavy periods and pregnancy are the most common causes of iron deficiency anaemia as your body needs extra iron for your baby during pregnancy. Unless youre pregnant, its rare for iron deficiency anaemia to be caused just by a lack of iron in your diet. However, if you do lack dietary iron, it may mean youre more likely to develop anaemia than if you have one of the problems mentioned above..

Anti-Inflammatory Foods. Have you ever had an injury where you have to take anti-inflammatory medications? Or maybe you are clumsy and continuously hurt yourself by stubbing a toe on the bed post or running into a door at night. Either way, instead of just taking anti-inflammatory medication, there are foods you can eat that act as anti-inflammatory agents. Well, maybe not directly, but definitely by contrasting the enemy - foods that induce inflammation. There are foods that can actually slow down the progression of your healing when related to such. Two of them are high-fat and high-carbohydrate foods.. If you are recovering from an injury with inflammation, just stay away from both of those. They will slow your healing and deliberately un-hurry your anti-inflammatory meds. Instead, take the opposite approach and eat foods high in protein and nutrient-rich produce, along with some healthy fats. A meal including a Pineapple Salmon Dish, with a side of Spinach would be a good start. You can also ...
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs selective for inhibition of cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) were developed to conserve the analgesic and anti-inflammatory efficacy of older nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that inhibited cyclooxygenase 1 and COX-2, while reducing the likelihood of gastrointestinal adverse effects. Although this objective was broadly attained, COX-2 inhibitors, which turned out to include some older nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like diclofenac, also caused thrombotic events, hypertension, and cardiac failure attributable to suppression of COX-2-derived PGI2. The microsomal prostaglandin E synthase-1 (mPGES-1) enzyme is downstream of COX-2 and accounts for most of the prostaglandin E2 that is formed in humans. Some, but not all studies in mice lacking mPGES-1 suggest analgesic and anti-inflammatory efficacy similar to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Most, but not all studies suggest that unlike COX-2 disruption or inhibition, global mPGES-1 deletion does not ...
