This study investigates potentials of solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN)-based gel for transdermal delivery of tenoxicam (TNX) and describes a pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) modeling approach for predicting concentration-time profile in skin. A 2(3) factorial design was adopted to study the effect of formulation factors on SLN properties and determine the optimal formulation. SLN-gel tolerability was investigated using rabbit skin irritation test. Its anti-inflammatory activity was assessed by carrageenan-induced rat paw edema test...

CLINICAL SCENARIO: For active individuals, plantar fasciitis (PF) is one of the most clinically diagnosed causes of heel pain. When conservative treatment fails, one of the next most commonly used treatments includes corticosteroid injections. Although PF has been identified as a degenerative condition, rather than inflammatory, corticosteroid injection is still commonly prescribed. However, the literature has not been examined to determine the effect of corticosteroid injection on PF...

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) constitute an important pharmacotherapeutic class that, over the past decade, have expanded in application to a panoply of medical conditions. They have been tested for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's to reduce inflammation and also in the attempt to abrogate amyloid deposition. However, the use of NSAIDs as aggregation inhibitors has not been extensively studied in pancreatic amyloid deposition. Pancreatic amyloidosis involves the misfolding of islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP) and contributes to the progression of type-2 diabetes in humans and felines...

Nefopam is a non-opioid, non-steroidal, centrally acting analgesic drug used to prevent postoperative pain, primarily in the context of multimodal analgesia. This paper reviews preclinical and clinical studies in which nefopam has been combined with opioids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory compounds, and paracetamol. This report focuses on the literature during the last decade and discusses the translational efforts between animal and clinical studies in the context of multimodal or balanced analgesia. In preclinical rodent models of acute and inflammatory pain, nefopam combinations including opioids revealed a synergistic interaction or enhanced morphine analgesia in six out of seven studies...

The profusely employed drugs Piroxicam (Piro), Tenoxicam (Teno) and Meloxicam (Melo) belonging to the non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) family of the Oxicams (Oxis) were studied in the frame of two specific conditions: (a) their ROS scavenging ability, in relation to a possible biological antioxidant action and (b) their photodegradability under environmental conditions, in the context of Oxi-contaminated waters. Singlet molecular oxygen (O2((1)Δg)) and superoxide radical anion (O2(-)) were photogenerated through Riboflavin (Rf, vitamin B2)-photosensitization in aqueous and aqueous-methanolic solutions in the presence of Oxi concentrations in the range 50-500 μM...

BACKGROUND: This is an updated version of the original Cochrane overview published in Issue 9, 2011. That overview considered both efficacy and adverse events, but adverse events are now dealt with in a separate overview.Thirty-nine Cochrane reviews of randomised trials have examined the analgesic efficacy of individual drug interventions in acute postoperative pain. This overview brings together the results of those individual reviews and assesses the reliability of available data. OBJECTIVES: To summarise the efficacy of pharmaceutical interventions for acute pain in adults with at least moderate pain following surgery who have been given a single dose of oral analgesic...

OBJECTIVE: Lyophilized drug manufacturing and intra-articular (IA) applications have increased to address gastrointestinal side effects resulting from chronic treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for degenerative joint disease. Accordingly, we histologically examined joint and stomach tissues from rats to determine and compare the effects of long-term treatment with an IA corticosteroid (methylprednisolone acetate), lyophilized NSAID (tenoxicam), and non-lyophilized NSAID (diclofenac) following application to the knee joint...

Tenoxicam (TNX) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, backache and pain. However, prolonged oral use of this drug is associated with gastrointestinal adverse events like peptic ulceration, thus necessitating its development as topical formulation that could obviate the adverse effects and improve patient compliance. The present study was aimed at development of microemulsion-based formulations of TNX for topical delivery at the affected site...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of 20 non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in the short-term treatment of ankylosing spondylitis (AS). METHODS: We performed a systematic literature review of randomised controlled trials of NSAIDs in patients with active AS. We included trials that reported efficacy at 2-12 weeks. Efficacy outcomes were the change in pain score and change in the duration of morning stiffness. We also examined the number of adverse events...
