Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent that is less effective than equal doses of ASPIRIN in relieving pain and reducing fever. However, individuals who are hypersensitive to ASPIRIN may tolerate sodium salicylate. In general, this salicylate produces the same adverse reactions as ASPIRIN, but there is less occult gastrointestinal bleeding. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p120)
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent (ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AGENTS, NON-STEROIDAL) similar in mode of action to INDOMETHACIN.
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Oxyphenbutazone eyedrops have been used abroad in the management of postoperative ocular inflammation, superficial eye injuries, and episcleritis. (From AMA, Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p2000) It had been used by mouth in rheumatic disorders such as ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis but such use is no longer considered justified owing to the risk of severe hematological adverse effects. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p27)
Anti-inflammatory Agents, Non-steroidal
Anti-inflammatory agents that are not steroids. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions. They are used primarily in the treatment of chronic arthritic conditions and certain soft tissue disorders associated with pain and inflammation. 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. Certain NSAIDs also may inhibit lipoxygenase enzymes or TYPE C PHOSPHOLIPASES or may modulate T-cell function. (AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p 1814-5)
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent with analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic properties. It is an inhibitor of cyclooxygenase.
BACKGROUND: Use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) has been associated with a reduced risk of several cancers. This is thought to be through the inhibitory action on the cyclooxygenase...
Objective. The role of analgesic drug use in ovarian cancer development is not fully understood. We examined the association between analgesic use and risk of ovarian cancer. In addition, we examined...
PURPOSE: Use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may reduce the incidence of several cancers. A recent meta-analysis of randomized trials of aspirin reported a redu...
Pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory mediators derived from arachidonic acid (AA) modulate peripheral inflammation and its resolution. Aspirin (ASA) is a unique non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug,...
PURPOSE: Results of the association between non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and melanoma risk have been inconsistent. We performed a meta-analysis of relevant studies to investigate the...
This study is not being conducted in the United States. Patients who are intolerant of topical corticosteroids (TCS) have either experienced an adverse event resulting from the use of TCS...
The purpose of this investigation is to collect following data in patients given Nexium capsule (Nexium) for long term in usual-post-marketing therapy to prevention of recurrence of gastri...
The main purpose of this research study is to collect information to learn how effective erlotinib (tarceva) is in combination with either bevacizumab or sulindac in treating patients with...
The objective of this study is to compare the gastroduodenal ulceration rate, and gastrointestinal (GI) complication rate and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)-associated dyspep...
The aim of this study is to study the natural history of the ulcer healing while on proton pump inhibitors (PPI) and the ulcer recurrence without acid suppression therapy of Non-steroidal...
