Anti-Inflammatory Agents, Non-Steroidal: 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.Inflammation: A pathological process characterized by injury or destruction of tissues caused by a variety of cytologic and chemical reactions. It is usually manifested by typical signs of pain, heat, redness, swelling, and loss of function.Okadaic Acid: A specific inhibitor of phosphoserine/threonine protein phosphatase 1 and 2a.

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.. ...

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, ...

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.. ...
Opioids are the corner stone in the treatment of post operative pain. Because of the several side effects of opiods, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are usually added postoperatively to decrease the total requirements of opioids. However, non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have side effects of their own. Vitamin C, with virtually no side effects when used on short-term basis, has been shown to have promising analgesic effects in chronic pain and acute pain relief following orthopedic surgeries.. The investigators propose to assess the role of a prophylactic single dose (2g) of vitamin C in reducing the intensity of pain and the consumption of opioids in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy at AUB-MC.. All eligible patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy at AUB-MC will be included in the study. Patients will be randomized into two groups to receive either single dose oral vitamin C (2g) (Study Group) or identically looking placebo capsules (Control Group). Both the ...
As with other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, borderline elevations of one or more liver function tests may occur in up to 15% of patients. These abnormalities may progress, may remain essentially unchanged, or may be transient with continued therapy. Severe hepatic reactions, including jaundice and cases of fatal hepatitis, have been reported with ibuprofen as with other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Although such reactions are rare, if abnormal liver tests persist or worsen, if clinical signs and symptoms consistent with liver disease develop, or if systemic manifestations occur (e.g., eosinophilia, rash, etc.), ibuprofen should be discontinued ...

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.

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 ...
Danish researchers conducted a population-based, case-control study that found an association between long-term, continuous use of low-dose aspirin and long-term use of nonaspirin nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and decreased colorectal cancer risk.
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.. ...
... 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 ...
Medical therapy has failed to make any significant impact on survival in pancreatic cancer. Non Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) have shown promise in several gastrointestinal (Gl) cancers. Evidence has suggested a similar effect in pancreatic cancer. Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), a major target of NSAIDs, is upregulated in pancreatic cancer and is associated with worse prognosis. COX-2 upregulation has been shown to correlate with angiogenesis and production of pro- angiogenic growth factors, especially Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), in several Gl cancers. Although this relationship between COX-2 and angiogenesis in pancreatic cancer would seem a viable target, clinical trials of COX-2 or VEGF inhibitors have demonstrated no survival benefit ...
Nitric oxide-releasing non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NO-NSAIDs) are a promising class of compounds that cause cell cycle perturbations and induce apoptosis in cell lines from different tumors. We investigated the activity of a recently developed NO-NSAID (NCX 4040) in bladder cancer cell lines (HT1376 and MCR). Cells were treated with different drug concentrations for different exposure times. Cytostatic and cytocidal activity was tested by SRB assay and apoptosis was evaluated by TUNEL analysis, ANNEXIN V assay and fluorescence microscopy. To further investigate the cell death-inducing mechanisms of NCX 4040, we analyzed gp-170, caspase expression and mitochondrial membrane potential (Delta Psi) depolarization. NCX 4040 showed a striking cytocidal activity in both cell lines, reaching LC(50) at a 10-mu M and 50-mu M concentrations in HT1376 and in MCR cells, respectively, after an exposure of only 6 h followed by an 18-h washout. Apoptosis was triggered in up to 90% of cells and was ...
The metabolic fate of nitric oxide (NO) released from nitroaspirin, benzoic acid, 2-(acetyloxy)-3-[(nitrooxy)methyl]phenyl ester (NCX 4016), the lead compound of a new class of NO-releasing non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NO-NSAIDs), has been studied in the rat following p.o. and i.p. administration of 100 mg/kg, by monitoring in plasma the bioactive storage forms of NO (S-nitrosothiols, RS-NO) and its oxidation products (nitrites/nitrates, NOx) by a chemiluminescent assay. In parallel, plasma was analyzed for unchanged drug and metabolites by reverse-phase HPLC. In orally treated rats, no unchanged drug is observed in the 0-24 h interval post-dosing, but only salicylic acid (SA), NOx and RS-NO. The time-course of SA formation parallels that of plasma NOx (plateau after 6 h). Nitrosothiols in plasma are detectable at 1 h, peak at 4 h post-administration, and decline thereafter. The results relative to i.p. administration show a more pronounced and rapid NO delivery (peak of both NOx and ...
Shin splints" is a term to describe pain and swelling in the front of the lower legs. The pain usually appears after and is aggravated by repetitive activities such as running or walking. Contributing causes are flat feet, calf tightness, improper training techniques, worn out or improper shoes/sneakers, as well as running or walking on uneven surfaces. The inflammation in the shin results from the repeated pull of a muscle in the leg from the shin bone (tibia).. This condition usually occurs bilaterally (both legs) and can be alleviated by rest, use of non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, icing, a change in training habits, stretching exercises, and properly fitted shoes. A foot and ankle surgeon can treat the condition, recommend proper shoe gear, and evaluate whether orthotics are needed. If not treated, shin splints may eventually result in a stress fracture of the shin bone.. ...
Some drug classes have been amalgamated from these three principles to meet practical needs. The class of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is one such example. Strictly speaking, and also historically, the wider class of anti-inflammatory drugs also comprises steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These drugs were in fact the predominant anti-inflammatories during the decade leading up to the introduction of the term "nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs". Because of the disastrous reputation that the corticosteroids had got in the 1950s, the new term, which offered to signal that an anti-inflammatory drug was not a steroid, rapidly gained currency.[4] The drug class of "nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs" (NSAIDs) is thus composed by one element ("anti-inflammatory") that designates the mechanism of action, and one element ("nonsteroidal") that separates it from other drugs with that same mechanism of action. Similarly, one might argue that the class of disease-modifying ...

Inflammation is perhaps the most common cause of pain. Inflammatory reactions are major contributors to Alzheimers disease and to Atherosclerosis, including coronary heart disease. Free radicals and C-Reactive protein are the chief lab tests indicating an inflammatory response. Inflammation may occur because of an infection but also is a reaction to trauma and toxins. Anti-inflammatory drugs are increasingly being touted as useful in treating pain, as well as for preventing Alzheimers and coronary heart disease. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are among the most widely OTC products. The "original", aspirin, or acetyl salicylic acid, is one of the best. Incidentally, its major "competitor", acetaminophen, is NOT anti-inflammatory. Acetaminophen does help reduce fever but, in my opinion, it is a lousy pain reliever. Acetaminophen is, in my opinion, not a drug worth taking! It has a much higher incidence of liver damage than the N-SAIDS. Other N-SAIDS, such as ibuprofen, ketoprofen, ...
The non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)-silver(I) metallodrugs of aspirin (aspH), salicylic acid (salH2), naproxen (napH) acid or p-hydrobenzoic acid (pHbzaH) and the mitochondriotropic triphenylarsine (tpAs) with the formulae [Ag(asp)(tpAs)3] (1), [Ag(salH)(tpAs)3] (2), [Ag(nap)(tpAs)3] (3) and {[Ag(pHbza)(tpAs)3]∙(dmf)} (4) and [Ag(tpAs)3(NO3)] (5) have been synthesized and characterized by m.p., FT-IR, UV-vis and (1)H NMR, spectroscopic techniques and X-ray crystallography.

Background: Fracture-healing is impaired in mice lacking a functional cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) gene or in rats continuously treated with COX-2 inhibitors. These observations indicate that COX-2 is a critical regulator of fracture repair. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are commonly used to treat pain associated with musculoskeletal trauma and disease. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs inhibit COX-2 function and in so doing can impair fracture-healing. The goal of the present study was to determine how variations in nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug therapy ultimately affect fracture-healing. Methods: Closed femoral fractures were made in female Sprague-Dawley rats. The rats were treated with different doses of celecoxib (a COX-2-selective nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) or were treated for different periods before or after fracture with celecoxib. Eight weeks after the fracture, healing was assessed with radiography and destructive torsional mechanical testing. The effect of ...
Recent news from the Seattle Barretts Esophagus Program at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in collaboration with Brigham & Womens College and the University of California in San Francisco have shown that a systematic approach to early cancer detection can boost five-year survival rates from about 15 percent to more than 80 percent. They have also shown that modifiable lifestyle factors-from reducing obesity to quitting smoking-may also prevent progression of Barretts esophagus to esophageal cancer. Some of the ways to prevent this condition from progressing to esophageal cancer were identified and follow.. Earlier research in 2007 reported that people with the more aggressive form of Barretts may benefit gfrom preventive therapy with aspirin or other non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Following Barretts patients over time they identified a cluster of 4 known cancer bio markers in this group that increased their risk of developing esophageal cancer. They found that subjects ...

It is normal to lose between 50-100 hairs per day, that is part of the hair renewal process. However, most of the people have problems with excessive thinning hair previously in their life. There are many reasons because of this including medication, radiation, chemotherapy, exposure to chemicals, hormonal and nutritional factors, thyroid disease, generalized or local skin ailment, and stress. If you are suffering thinning hair along with your part is getting wider, there is a broad range of conditions that could be the reason behind your hair thinning. And you are one of many, by the age of 50, 50% of ladies experience some hair thinning. There are many, many reasons for hair loss; many of the most common causes are thyroid disorders, anemia, autoimmune diseases, polycystic ovary syndrome, and skin problems, psoriasis or seborrheic, and prescriptions including antidepressants, beta-blockers, and non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.. Any of these factors could cause hair to shed. Saw palmetto ...
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 ...
BACKGROUND: Endometriosis is a common gynaecological condition that affects women and can lead to painful symptoms and infertility. It affects womens quality of life greatly, impacting on their careers, everyday activities, sexual and non-sexual relationships, and fertility. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the most commonly used first-line treatment for endometriosis. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of NSAIDs for the management of pain in women with endometriosis compared to placebo, other NSAIDs, other pain management drugs, or no treatment. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched the Cochrane Menstrual Disorders and Subfertility Group Specialised Trials Register (May 2005) published in the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), MEDLINE (1966 to May 2005), EMBASE (1980 to May 2005) and the reference lists from relevant publications. Experts in the field were also contacted for information about possible studies. SELECTION CRITERIA: We included all randomized controlled

Stop drinking alcohol for at least a month. Alcohol consumption induces a state of "leaky gut" increasing plasma and liver endotoxin levels, leading to liver diseases.. Avoid any foods that you are allergic to. Make sure you are eating plenty of fiber.. Stop using aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).. Have a stool test for intestinal parasites.. Adopt an anti-inflammatory dietary pattern including essential fatty acids like fish oil and GLA. Avoid foods with added sugar and refined starches, made from white flour. Decrease the consumption of saturated fat and most vegetable oils. Eat at least 9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day and at least 4 servings of fish per week.. There are dietary supplements that help the small intestine heal and restore its functional integrity. The most important of these are the amino acid L-glutamine and the amino sugar N-acetyl- glucosamine, which are readily available in health food stores. Glutamine, an amino ...

ABSTRACT: Analyzing medical records of 979 patients with severe sepsis or septic shock provided some evidence that the use of low-dose aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) was associated with decreased hospital mortality. However
If you believe mainstream medicine, chronic pain is caused by too much inflammation.. And to stop this ongoing pain, you must take drugs that block the release of inflammation. Drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).. If you follow this advice you will quickly become consumed with MORE pain (and increase your risk of much more serious disease!. Heres why:. There are three critical steps in the healing process. Inflammation is the first …. ...
The incubation period is typically 3-12 days. There is no specific treatment for Zika virus infection and if symptoms develop these will typically clear up within 4-7 days. Get plenty of rest and fluids, and treat the symptoms that you have. Use paracetamol for pain and fever if needed. Until dengue can be ruled out, do not take aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen, due to the risk of bleeding.. Zika virus is transmitted by mosquitoes (members of the Aedes family) that are active during the day. Anyone who is bitten by an infected mosquito is potentially at risk of infection.. Zika virus and pregnancy Pregnant women who become infected with Zika virus can transmit the disease to their unborn babies, with potentially serious consequences. Prenatal Zika virus infection is a cause of microcephaly and other serious brain anomalies in developing fetuses. Reports from several countries, most notably Brazil, show that there has been an increase in severe birth ...

The current ASAS recommendations for collecting/analysing and reporting NSAID intake have many strengths. This uniform recording, analysis and reporting of NSAID intake will facilitate and allow comparison between different studies particularly for its two main objectives-that is, to compare the potential NSAID sparing effect of a particular treatment such as tumour necrosis factor blockers and to evaluate the relationship between NSAID intake and comorbidities such as cardiovascular events and/or renal failure. These recommendations have been based on both the expertise of the ASAS members and the evaluation of available information in the literature, which can be seen as a strength. However, this can also been seen as a weakness since this was not a data-driven approach as has been used previously in osteoarthritis.20 In contrast, the way in which the information was collected on NSAID intake in recently conducted therapeutical trials evaluating disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs or ...
For a disease such as cancer, where a number of alterations to normal cell function accumulate over time, there are several opportunities to inhibit, slow down or even reverse the process. Many of the changes which drive the disease process occur in cell-signalling pathways that regulate proliferation and apoptosis. As our knowledge of these complicated signalling networks improves, it is becoming clear that many molecules, both drugs and naturally occurring dietary constituents, can interact beneficially with deregulated pathways. Aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as natural compounds present in plants such as green vegetables and tea, can modulate signalling by affecting kinase activity and therefore phosphorylation of key molecules. Examples of pathways which can be modulated by these agents include activation of the transcription factor nuclear factor κB by tumour promoters or cytokines, signalling by growth factors through the growth-factor ...

A naturally occurring chemical found in extra-virgin olive oils is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent, report scientists from the Monell Chemical Senses Center and collaborators at the University of Pennsylvania. Named "oleocanthal" by the researchers, the compound inhibits activity of cyclooxygenase (COX) enzymes, similar to the action of ibuprofen. The finding is significant because inflammation increasingly [...] ...
Electrokinetic supercharging (EKS) has been used in the last few years as a powerful tool for separation and on-line preconcentration of different types of analytes. We have developed a valuable modification for EKS system, namely counter-flow EKS (CF-EKS) and applied it for the separation and on-line preconcentration of seven non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in water samples. In CF-EKS, a hydrodynamic counter-flow is applied during electrokinetic injection of the analytes within the EKS system. This counter-flow minimises the introduction of the sample matrix into the capillary, allowing longer injections to be performed. Careful choice of the optimum counter-flow as well as the optimum injection voltage allowed the sensitivity to be enhanced by 11,800-fold, giving limits of detection (LODs) of 10.7-47.0 ng/L for the selected NSAIDs. The developed method was validated and then applied for the determination of the studied NSAIDs in drinking water as well as wastewater samples from Hobart
The combination of the difluoromethylornithine (DFMO) and sulindac reduces the rate of colon adenomas (growths or polyps) by up to 95% among patients who have had prior colon polyps. These results were presented as a late-breaking abstract at the 2008 annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research.. Adenomas are abnormal growths that often arise in the colon and have the potential to turn cancerous. Individuals who have adenomas are at an increased risk of developing future adenomas and are therefore encouraged to undergo more stringent screening, such as colonoscopy. Adenomas are removed during a colonoscopy to prevent the possibility that they may progress to cancer.. Researchers from the University of California Irvine recently conducted a clinical trial to evaluate DFMO and sulindac in the prevention of adenoma recurrences. DFMO aids in reducing excess cellular replication, and sulindac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent. Although DFMO had demonstrated promising ...
Background: Most epidemiological studies evaluating the association between nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and acute renal failure (ARF) found an increased risk for developing ARF while taking NSAIDs. Despite these studies, little is known about the effect of dose and duration of therapy, risk of individual NSAIDs, comorbidity, or concomitant use of other nephrotoxic drugs. Methods: This is a nested case-control study using the General Practice Research Database from the United Kingdom.

HIGH PENETRATION COMPOSITIONS AND USES THEREOF - The present invention relates to compositions and uses of novel high penetration compositions or high penetration prodrugs (HPP), in particular HPPs for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIAs), which are capable of crossing biological barriers with high penetration efficiency. The HPPs herein are capable of being converted to parent active drugs or drug metabolites after crossing the biological barrier and thus can render treatments for the conditions that the parent drugs or metabolites can. Additionally, due to the ability of penetrating biological barriers, the HPPs herein are capable of reaching areas that parent drugs may not be able to access or to render a sufficient concentration at the target areas and therefore render novel treatments. The HPPs herein can be administered to a subject through various administration routes. For example, the HPPs can be locally delivered to an action site of a condition with a high concentration due ...
The Side Effects of Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs: Are They Attributed to the Selective Inhibition of Different Isoforms of Cyclooxygenase ?
Results During follow-up (median 4.9 years) 6283 events occurred. The cardiovascular risk associated with overall NSAID use was significantly lower in RA patients than in controls (HR 1.22 (95% CI 1.09 to 1.37) vs 1.51 (1.36 to 1.66), p,0.01). The pattern of lower NSAID-associated risk in RA patients was generally found with the individual NSAIDs investigated. While use of rofecoxib (HR 1.57 (1.16 to 2.12)) and diclofenac (HR 1.35 (1.11 to 1.64)) was associated with increased cardiovascular risk in RA patients, there was no significant risk increase associated with use of other NSAIDs in these patients.. ...

Prescription NSAIDs are an important treatment for the symptoms of many debilitating conditions, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis‎, gout and other rheumatological and painful conditions. OTC NSAIDs are used to temporarily reduce fever
A study from Denmark of almost 100,000 patients over a 12-year period has concluded that:. The use of NSAIDs is associated with persistently increased coronary risk regardless of time elapsed after first-time MI. We advise long-term caution in using NSAIDs for patients after MI.. The study, published online before print in Circulation is titled, "Long-Term Cardiovascular Risk of NSAID Use According to Time Passed After First-Time Myocardial Infarction: A Nationwide Cohort Study." The researchers looked at the nationwide registries of hospitalization and drug dispensing from pharmacies in Denmark for the years 1997-2009 and calculated the incidence of death and heart attack associated with NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug) use up to five years after a heart attack (in one-year increments).. The NSAIDs specifically looked at were celecoxib (Celebrex), rofecoxib (Vioxx), ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), diclofenac, and naproxen. While NSAIDs have been associated with adverse coronary events, ...
Decreasing tumor-induced immune suppression. Secreted proteins released by tumors that lead to immune escape can be targets to monoclonal antibody blockade. For example, the anti-VEGF antibody bevacizumab, in addition to its effect of tumor vasculature, may decrease VEGF-induced inhibition of DC and T-cell function (32). Monoclonal antibodies to transforming growth factor-β and IL-10 are also potential means to reverse immune escape induced by tumor-released molecules. In addition, anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, including the specific cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor celecoxib, could be means to inhibit cyclooxygenase-2 that leads to prostaglandin E2 production (33).. Depletion of immunosuppressive cells. T regulatory cells, myeloid suppressor cells, and IDO-positive plasmacytoid DC have emerged as major immunosuppressive cells reported to be implicated in escape of tumors from immune control (34, 35). Depletion of CD4/CD25/FoxP3-positive ...
The present study was designed to compare gastrointestinal mucosal side effects of four different NSAIDs in an acute setting. While one was an agent linked to the development of classical gastrointestinal damage (naproxen), meloxicam shows some preference for the COX-2 enzyme, celecoxib was specifically designed to selectively inhibit COX-2, while a modified release formulation of indomethacin was designed to reduce gastric toxicity. There are several published clinical studies examining NSAID induced intestinal permeability31; however, to our knowledge this is the first description of the effect of these different NSAIDs on regional gastrointestinal permeability of the entire gut.. The study demonstrated that acute doses of NSAIDs had differential toxicity depending on the type of drug used and the level of the gastrointestinal tract evaluated. In this regard, we will discriminate between the effects of the drugs at the three different levels assessed. Firstly, upper gastrointestinal ...
To assess the role of BAX in drug-induced apoptosis in human colorectal cancer cells, we generated cells that lack functional BAX genes. Such cells were partially resistant to the apoptotic effects of the chemotherapeutic agent 5-fluorouracil, but apoptosis was not abolished. In contrast, the absence of BAX completely abolished the apoptotic response to the chemopreventive agent sulindac and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). NSAIDs inhibited the expression of the antiapoptotic protein Bcl-XL, resulting in an altered ratio of BAX to Bcl-XL and subsequent mitochondria-mediated cell death. These results establish an unambiguous role forBAX in apoptotic processes in human epithelial cancers and may have implications for cancer chemoprevention strategies. ...

Opium has been used for thousands of years, and its clinical value cannot be overstated. Pain transcends the boundaries of all medical specialties and impacts almost everyone at some stage of their life. There are many classes of drugs used to relieve pain. Mild to moderate pain is typically treated with acetaminophen or aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), but the mainstay of pain management for severe pain remains the opiates. Their effects on pain are quite intriguing. Unlike local anesthetics that relieve pain by blocking all sensory transmission, opiates selectively modulate the perception of pain without interfering with basic sensations, such as light touch, temperature, position sense, and discrimination of sharp and dull. The opioids target the subjective component of pain, an integrated sensation. It is not uncommon for a patient to remark after taking an opiate that "the pain is still there, but it does not hurt.". The early preparations of opium were oral ...
New study reaffirms cardiac risks of ibuprofen and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Should over-the-counter sales of these medications be restricted?
For aching joints or a throbbing head, millions of Americans turn to aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)…
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly prescribed or used over the counter to reduce pain and fever or for other purposes. Wikipedia NSAIDs are well known for causing side effects such as gastrointestinal bleeding. Some NSAIDs, such as lumiracoxib, have been withdrawn from the US and European markets because they carry a higher risk of liver toxicity. Pharmaceutical companies have identified many SNPs that influence the risk of toxicity. Numerous NSAIDs are available, including these familiar types: ...
BACKGROUND: Gastroprotective agents (GPA) substantially reduce morbidity and mortality with long-term nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and aspirin. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate efficacy of NSAIDs, protection against NSAID-induced gastrointestinal harm, and balance of benefit and risk. METHODS: Free text searches of PubMed (December 2012) supplemented with related citation and cited by facilities on PubMed and Google Scholar for patient requirements, NSAID effectiveness, pain relief benefits, gastroprotective strategies, adherence to gastroprotection prescribing, and serious harm with NSAIDs and GPA. RESULTS: Patients want 50% reduction in pain intensity and improved fatigue, distress, and quality of life. Meta-analyses of NSAID trials in musculoskeletal conditions had bimodal responses with good pain relief or little. Number needed to treat (NNTs) for good pain relief were 3 to 9. Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) and high-dose histamine-2 receptor antagonists (H2 RA) provided similar
To the Editor:. We enjoyed the comprehensive article by Rathmell et al. [1] reviewing the management of nonobstetric pain during pregnancy and lactation. Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAID) are now widely used after cesarean delivery. Rathmell et al. state that the NSAID ibuprofen, naproxen, and ketorolac are compatible with breast feeding, whereas indomethacin should be avoided based on case reports of neonatal seizures and nephrotoxicity. This perpetuates a long-standing recommendation that we believe is not supported by available information. The potential for neonatal seizures after indomethacin is based on a single case report [2] in which a 7-day-old breast-fed infant, whose mother had been receiving indomethacin, had unexplained convulsions.

The incidence of hemorrhage in subjects taking low-dose aspirin rose from 15 per 100 000 of the population per annum in 1996, to 18 in 1999 and 27 in 2002.. The team found that the incidence of hemorrhage in subjects taking other anti-thrombotic drugs was 4 in 1996, 8 in 1999, and 12 in 2002.. The researchers detected no significant change in non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug users.. However, the team noted that acute myocardial infarction mortality was 216 per 100 000 in 1996, 221 in 1999 and fell to 169 in 2002.. Dr Tahas team concludes, The incidence of upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage in users of low-dose aspirin and other anti-thrombotic drugs has been steadily rising. This has been paralleled by a fall in cardiac mortality. ...
If paracetamol does not effectively control the pain of your osteoarthritis, your GP may prescribe a stronger painkiller. This may be a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). NSAIDs are painkillers which work by reducing inflammation. There are two types of NSAID and they work in slightly different ways. These are traditional NSAIDs (such as ibuprofen, naproxen or diclofenac) and COX-2 inhibitors, often called coxibs (such as celecoxib and etoricoxib).. Some NSAIDs are available as creams (topical NSAIDs) that you apply directly to the affected joints. Some topical NSAIDs are available over the counter (OTC) without a prescription. They can be particularly effective if you have osteoarthritis in your knees or hands. As well as helping to ease pain, they can also help reduce any swelling in your joints.. Your doctor will discuss with you the type of NSAID you should take and the benefits and risks associated with it. NSAID tablets may not be suitable for people with certain conditions, ...
Analgesics are widely used in dentistry as "pain killers" and for their anti-inflammatory properties. These compounds are divided into two primary classifications: simple analgesics and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). Regardless of the cause, simple analgesics and NSAIDS have an effect on pain. While several common side effects exist (eg, nausea, vomiting, rashes, assorted gastrointestinal disturbances, and occasionally tinnitus), they are generally considered safe for the short-term treatment of tooth, periodontal, and musculoskeletal pain associated with dental procedures.. Analgesics by definition and usage only relieve pain. Their effect begins within minutes of administration and generally lasts for several hours. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are also analgesics when administered in single doses. By comparison, corticosteroids are purely anti-inflammatory and exert no analgesic effect.. Narcotics are often required by patients suffering from an acute onset of dental ...

Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs Inhibit Prostaglandin Biology Essay Published: 23, March 2015 Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs are inhibitors of prostaglandin, they have several key therapeutic effects, anti-inflammatory, antipyretic (reduces fevers) and analgesic. NSAIDs...
3. NSAIDs: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are pharmaceuticals that are not corticosteroids (like prednisone) or opioids (like morphine or codeine). They can have different mechanisms of action, and, because of that, may have different levels of efficacy and safety in individual animals. This class of drugs includes carprofen, ketoprofen, meloxicam, aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen and many others.. Aspirin is the only over-the-counter NSAID that is well-known to be safe, although its use in dogs is considered off-label. Its always best to talk to your veterinarian before using it. Safer and more effective products than aspirin are available, so it should be used only as a temporary measure unless specifically recommended by your vet. If using aspirin, give only buffered aspirin, as the non-buffered form can cause significant stomach upset.. The prescription NSAIDs like carprofen and meloxicam have a very good safety and efficacy record. In my opinion, the risk of side effects is well worth ...
Indications: RA, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, spondyloarthropathy, gout, pain. Mechanism of Action: Anti-inflammatory and antiplatelet properties are mediated by the inhibition of COX enzymes and decreased production of prostaglandins. Drugs that inhibit COX-2 are anti-inflammatory because they decrease the formation of prostaglandins by activated cells. Drugs that inhibit COX-1 decrease the production of thromboxane and thus decrease platelet activation. Because COX-1 contributes to the maintenance of gastric mucosa, blocking COX-1 increases the risk of peptic ulceration. NSAIDs are classified according to whether they inhibit both COX-1 and COX-2 (nonselective NSAIDs) or whether they are more selective for COX-2 and spare COX-1 (COX-2 selective NSAIDs or coxibs). Nonacetylated salicylates such as salsalate are weak inhibitors of COX, and their mechanism of action is poorly understood.. Contraindications: Hypersensitivity to NSAIDs, GI ulceration, ...
Aspirin has three main therapeutic effects in the body: the antipyretic effect, the analgesic effect and the anti-inflammatory effect. This is due to the decreased production of prostaglandins and thromboxanes by the irreversible inactivation of the cyclooxygenase enzyme. Aspirin acts as an acetylating agent where an acetyl group is covalently attached to a serine residue in the active site of the COX enzyme[3]. This makes Aspirin different to other NSAIDS whereby they are reversible inhibitors and aspirin is not. The side effects are caused by the inhibition of COX-1 enzyme, which synthesises prostaglandin that serve essential physiological functions such as causing appropriate platelet aggregation, protection of the gastric mucosa, inhibition of thrombogenesis and maintenance of renal function. The therapeutic effects of NSAIDs are due to inhibition of COX-2, an enzyme induced by various factors released by bacteria, the vascular endothelium or other cells involved in the inflammatory ...
Background: Medicinal plant and plant products have shown tremendous potentials and are used beneficially in the treatment of inflammation and in the management of diseases with significant inflammatory components. Many medicinal plants employed as anti-inflammatory and antiphlogistic remedies lack the gastro-erosive side effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) or the plethora of unwanted side effects associated with steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. In order to harness and optimise the applications of these herbs in inflammatory diseases, there is a need to understand how these herbs produce their anti-inflammatory actions ...
Based on their hepatic extraction ratio and unbound fraction in plasma or blood drugs can be categorized as being restrictively ol non-restrictively eliminated The general perception is that drugs with very small plasma clearances and extensive plasma protein binding, such as warfarin, are eliminated restrictively. However, based on literature data for 18 non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) with low plasma clearances (, 60 mll min), we have shown that most of these low-extraction compounds are non-restrictively eliminated ie. their hepatic extraction ratio exceeds their unbound action in plasma. For 4 NSAIDs considered in this survey, ie. phenylbutazone and the oxicams piroxicam, isoxicam and tenoxicam, the hepatic extraction ratio is smaller than their unbound fraction in plasma, and their hepatic elimination, therefore, is restrictive. Our conclusion that most low-clearance NSAIDs are non-restrictively extracted is based an a number of realistic assumptions concerning their ...
When cells are damaged in a fracture, large amounts of prostaglandins are released. Prostaglandins are a group of lipids made at sites of tissue damage or infection that are involved in dealing with injury and illness. They control processes such as inflammation, blood flow, the formation of blood clots and the induction of labor. Although this is what causes you to feel the pain, the production of these lipids are also instrumental to the early stages of tissue repair.. Here is the catch. In order to alleviate pain, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed to stop the action of prostaglandins, but the prostaglandins are quintessential to the healing process. The best suggestion would be stop taking the NSAIDs as soon as possible after suffering a broken bone. Alternatively, you could take a non-NSAID pain medication such as acetaminophen for pain relief, for it does not have the same effect on prostaglandins.. ...
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 ...
Summary: What is known and objective: Safety of the anti-inflammatory drug flurbiprofen is comparable with that of other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs of the propionic acid class, which are commonly associated with gastrointestinal and renal side effects. Here we report a case of a fatal hypersensitivity reaction to an oral spray of flurbiprofen taken for sore throat. Case summary: A 29-year-old man came to the emergency care unit reporting sore throat with an intense burning sensation associated with fever. Pharyngotonsillitis was diagnosed, and local treatment with oral flurbiprofen spray was prescribed. Immediately after using the spray, the patient experienced a severe reaction characterized by serious dyspnoea, followed by death. The cause of death was heart failure with acute asphyxia from oedema of the glottis. The cause of death was concluded to be hypersensitivity to flurbiprofen spray. What is new and conclusion: Oral propionic acid derivatives have been associated with a ...
DDC classification: 1548,T Dissertation note: Piroxicam and Meloxicam are enolic acid derivatives and belong to oxicam class of non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. They are therapeutically used in rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. This study was designed to evaluate mutagenicity and cytotoxicity of piroxicam and meloxicam by Ames Salmonella/microsome mutagenicity assay and MTT assay. In this study, ten concentrations (100µg/ml, 300µg/ml, 500µg/ml, 700µg/ml, 900µg/ml, 1000µg/ml, 3000µg/ml, 5000µg/ml, 7000µg/ml and 10,000µg/ml) of piroxicam and meloxicam were used in Ames test against Salmonella strain TA100 in plate incorporation method, with and without metabolic activation S-9 mixture in triplicate manner. In MTT assay, confluent monolayer of BHK-21 cell lines was used and grown in 96-well cell culture plates treated with same concentrations of both drugs in triplicate manner. The results indicated that piroxicam had no mutagenic potential at concentrations of 100µg/plate ...
We recently cloned and characterized the rat kidney-specific organic anion transporter, OAT-K1, which was suggested to mediate renal tubular transport of methotrexate. In this study, we investigated the interactions of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) with OAT-K1 by evaluating the effects of these drugs on renal distribution of methotrexate in vivo, and on methotrexate accumulation in the stably transfected LLC-PK1 cells expressing OAT-K1 (LLC-OAT-K1). NSAIDs such as indomethacin and ketoprofen had significant inhibitory effects on renal accumulation of methotrexate in rats after coadministration. Indomethacin and ketoprofen inhibited methotrexate accumulation by LLC-OAT-K1 cells in a competitive manner with the apparent inhibition constant values of 1.0 mM and 1.9 mM, respectively. Other NSAIDs including ibuprofen, flufenamate and phenylbutazone also showed potent inhibitory effects on methotrexate accumulation. However, indomethacin was not transportedvia OAT-K1. These results ...

Patients with plantar fasciitis (PF) typically describe their pain after getting out of bed in the morning or after a period of inactivity. They state that the pain decreases after walking on the foot for a while. Most patients tolerate the condition before seeking medical help. Present conservative treatments for plantar fasciitis include rest, physical therapy, heel cushion, non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroid injections, taping, orthotics, shoe modifications, night splinting, and cast. A fairly new method of treatment is extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT). Despite numerous publications and clinical trials, one orthopedic application of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), which still remains highly equivocal, is the treatment of chronic plantar fasciitis. The aim of this work was to determine the role of the extracorporeal shockwave therapy in the treatment of recalcitrant chronic plantar fasciitis.. This study was carried out on 90 patients suffering from chronic ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Metachronous occurrence of collagenous colitis and ulcerative colitis. AU - Giardiello, Francis M. AU - Jackson, F. W.. AU - Lazenby, A. J.. PY - 1991. Y1 - 1991. N2 - Collagenous colitis and ulcerative colitis are distinct disorders. A 67 year old woman with clinical and histological evidence of collagenous colitis had an abrupt symptomatic exacerbation while taking anti-inflammatory treatment with sulphasalazine and prednisone. Repeat colorectal endoscopy showed active mucosal inflammation and colonic biopsy specimens were consistent with active ulcerative colitis. After bowel rest, total parenteral nutrition, intensification of the anti-inflammatory regimen, and withdrawal of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (which she had taken continuously for osteoarthritis) diarrhoea abated. Colorectal biopsy specimens obtained when the patients symptoms had improved showed inactive ulcerative colitis with no evidence of collagenous colitis. This may be the first case to be reported ...
