Postmenopausal women who reported having used nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for at least 10 years at the time of enrollment in the Women's Health Initiative study had a lower risk for death from colorectal cancer compared with women who reported no use of these drugs at enrollment, according to data presented at the 10th AACR International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research, held Oct. 22-25, 2011. "Our results suggest that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug...

An updated study published in this week's PLoS Medicine gives some new information on the cardiovascular risks of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and suggests that among these commonly used drugs, naproxen and low dose ibuprofen are least likely to increase cardiovascular risk whereas diclofenac, even in doses available without prescription, elevates risk. Using only observational studies (30 case-control studies and 21 cohort studies) because randomised controlled trials...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) — An updated study gives new information on the cardiovascular risks of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and suggests that naproxen, a commonly used drug, and low dose ibuprofen are least likely to increase cardiovascular risks. In addition, diclofenac, even doses available without prescription, elevates the risk. Using only observational studies, because randomized controlled trials have only reported small numbers of cardiovascular events, the...

Study in animal models calls attention to potential risk; may warrant clinical trials A new study from Rhode Island Hospital researchers suggests that controlling cholesterol may be important for heart health in patients who are taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as naproxen. The findings are based on a study on the safety of NSAID medications in clinically relevant animal models when high cholesterol is a factor. The study is published in the current issue of the...

Ibuprofen, naproxen, and related non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) — the subjects of years of study — still have some secrets to reveal about how they work. Vanderbilt University investigators have discovered surprising new insights into the actions of NSAIDs. Their findings, reported Sept. 25 in Nature Chemical Biology, raise the possibility of developing a new class of inflammation- and pain-fighting medicines. NSAIDs block the activity of the cyclooxygenase...

Highlights: *Celecoxib reduces the risk of developing precancerous colon polyps, at the cost of increased heart disease risk. *By looking closely at how celecoxib acts in the cell, it may be possible to get the benefit without the added risk. *Celecoxib inhibits the enzyme GSK3, possibly accounting for its anticancer effects in multiple cell types. Several clinical studies have shown that taking the anti-inflammatory drug celecoxib can reduce the risk of developing polyps that lead to...
