Arthritis, Juvenile Rheumatoid
Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic-onset (Still's Disease, Juvenile-Onset), polyarticular-onset, and pauciarticular-onset. Adult-onset cases of Still's disease (STILL'S DISEASE, ADULT-ONSET) are also known. Only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
An anti-inflammatory agent with analgesic and antipyretic properties. Both the acid and its sodium salt are used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other rheumatic or musculoskeletal disorders, dysmenorrhea, and acute gout.
Gold Sodium Thiomalate
A variable mixture of the mono- and disodium salts of gold thiomalic acid used mainly for its anti-inflammatory action in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It is most effective in active progressive rheumatoid arthritis and of little or no value in the presence of extensive deformities or in the treatment of other forms of arthritis.
Human immune-response, D-related antigen encoded by the D locus on chromosome 6 and found on lymphoid cells. It is strongly associated with rheumatoid arthritis and juvenile diabetes.
Human immune-response, D-related antigen encoded by the D-locus on chromosome 6 and found on lymphoid cells. It is associated with Kaposi sarcoma in AIDS and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
This multi-center observational Registry will collect long-term safety data on patients treated with celecoxib or non-selective nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsNSAIDs) as used in c...
This Is A Multicenter, Active-Controlled Trial To Evaluate The Effects Of Celecoxib (Celebrex®) Or Naproxen On Blood Pressure In Pediatric Subjects With Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
To answer the question of overall benefit: risk of celecoxib when compared to two most commonly prescribe traditional (non-selective) nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in the t...
The aim of this study is to compare a PPI (esomeprazole) plus a COX-2 inhibitor (celecoxib) with a PPI plus a nonselective NSAID (naproxen) in preventing recurrent ulcer bleeding in arthri...
To determine whether celecoxib is superior to combined therapy with diclofenac and omeprazole in the incidence of clinically significant upper and/or lower gastrointestinal (GI) events in...
Abstract Background: Gastrointestinal (GI) tolerability is an important treatment consideration for physicians when choosing a nonselective nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) for their elderl...
Celecoxib (Celebrex®) was the first cyclo-oxygenase (COX)-2 selective inhibitor (coxib) to be introduced into clinical practice. Coxibs were developed to provide anti-inflammatory/analgesic activity...
Celecoxib is a selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor with antitumor and antiangiogenic activities. To investigate the effects of celecoxib on nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), HNE-1 cells were tr...
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The prevalence of arthritis, which is often treated with celecoxib, is high in patients with coronary artery disease. Furthermore, celecoxib has been reported to reduce rest...
Summary Background and purpose: Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) improve inflammatory cachexia in several conditions. Thus, we have explored inhibition of COX-2 in an experimental model...
