Certain non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been associated with an increased risk of myocardial infarction (MI), a risk linked to cyclo-oxygenase-2 inhibition. There are limited studies assessing the risk of MI associated with meloxicam, an increasingly popular drug with COX-2 inhibiting properties. A nested matched case-control study using The Health Improvement Network, a UK population-based database was conducted. NSAID users between 35 and 89 years of age with at least 1 year enrollment in the cohort were included...

Three different methods, i.e., high-pressure homogenization, wet bead milling, and a combination approach of freeze-drying and high-pressure homogenization, were used to produce meloxicam nanosuspensions, respectively. Wet bead milling led to the nanosuspensions with smallest particle size (88 nm) after 4 h and optimal dissolution performances. Freeze-dried meloxicam powder could highly improve the size reduction efficiency compared to the unmodified drug and particle size of the freeze-dried sample could be reduced to 342 nm after only one homogenization cycle at 1000 bar...

Inflammatory conditions increase cardiovascular (CV) risk. Some nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that are used to treat pain and inflammation are also associated with CV complications. Inflammation, but not NSAIDs, disrupts the balance of vasodilator and vasoconstrictor components of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) within the heart. Herein, we report the effect of both inflammation and NSAIDs (rofecoxib, celecoxib and meloxicam) on the physiologically active cytochrome P450 (CYP) metabolites of arachidonic acid (ArA) in the rat with adjuvant arthritis (AA)...

Volatile agents for anaesthesia are widely used for anaesthetizing laboratory primates, and isoflurane is one of the most frequently used agents. Sevoflurane has been shown to offer a more rapid recovery than isoflurane in a number of species, but no comparisons have been made in non-human primates. This study compared the recovery characteristics of isoflurane and sevoflurane in rhesus macaques undergoing experimental neurosurgery. Twelve primates (7 males and 5 females) were randomly allocated to the treatment groups...

Selective COX-2 inhibitors are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs which directly target cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), an enzyme mainly responsible for induction of inflammation, pyresis and pain. Although commonly used in avian medicine, limited pharmacokinetic (PK) data in domestic and companion birds are available. In this study, PK parameters and absolute oral bioavailability expressed as percentage (F%) of celecoxib (10 mg/kg BW), mavacoxib (4 mg/kg BW) and meloxicam (1 mg/kg BW) were determined following single oral (PO) and intravenous (IV) administration to cockatiels (Nymphicus hollandicus)...
