  • COX-2 selective inhibitors and bone INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF IMMUNOPATHOLOGY AND PHARMACOLOGY Goodman, S. B., Ma, T., Genovese, M., Smith, R. L. 2003; 16 (3): 201-205


    Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are widely prescribed medications for relief of pain and inflammation. Recent animal studies using models of fracture healing and bone ingrowth suggest that NSAIDs (both non-selective NSAIDs and selective COX-2 inhibitors) adversely affect these bone-related processes. The dose and time-relationships of these medications and their resulting effects on bone have not yet been fully elucidated. Furthermore, whether COX-2 inhibitors and non-selective NSAIDs lead to clinically relevant adverse effects on bone healing in humans is unknown.
