Analgesic effect of Buddleja globosa is here demonstrated validating its use in traditional medicine. Season influence is important to be considered.
Increasingly patients resort to alternative remedies for arthritis and rheumatism, perhaps partly impelled by reports of toxicities from prescribed non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). There is uncertainty about whether the most common alternative treatments provide relief or may cause adverse reactions.

At the time of the study, 150 patients had been prescribed ibuprofen or some other NSAID. Out of the total number of dispensed questionnaires (n = 150), only 45 (30%) were shown to be correctly filled-in. Their analysis showed that 64.4% of the patients had suffered from rheumatic diseases for more than five years, and had regularly used NSAIDs. The average age of these patients was about 70 years, and the number of females was double as high as that of the males. The most frequently used NSAIDs were diclofenac and ibuprofen (46.14%, and 23.24%, respectively). According to the answers given by the patients, the most often adverse reactions were gastric complaints such as nausea (11.1%), and stomach pain (8.9%). Due to this, the majority of the patients (64.4%) used some of the antiulcer drugs, most often ranitidine (31.1%).

Electronic searches of the Cochrane Menstrual Disorders and Subfertility Group Register of controlled trials, CCTR, MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, Bio extracts, and PsycLIT were performed to identify relevant randomised controlled trials (RCTs). The Cochrane Complementary Medicine Field's Register of controlled trials (CISCOM) was also searched. Attempts were also made to identify trials from the National Research Register, the Clinical Trial Register and the citation lists of review articles and included trials. In most cases, the first or corresponding author of each included trial was contacted for additional information.

The 201L allele of S201L [TT versus CC: odds ratio (OR), 1.74; 95% confidence interval (95% CI), 1.15-2.62; TC versus CC: OR, 1.17; 95% CI, 0.93-1.49] and the 277E allele of K277E (GG versus AA: OR, 1.66; 95% CI, 1.03-2.68; GA versus AA: OR, 1.21; 95% CI, 0.96-1.53) were associated with increased risk of advanced distal colorectal adenoma (both P(trend) = 0.02); the TGTGCG haplotype of six informative single nucleotide polymorphisms was also associated with increased risk (OR, 1.27; 95% CI, 1.03-1.55). Regular ibuprofen users who were homozygous for the variant allele at either M9V or D175G were at reduced risk for adenoma (both P(interaction) < 0.05).

To identify consumer information needs about paracetamol, the most commonly used analgesic and antipyretic worldwide.
Oral analgesics are commonly prescribed for the treatment of acute and chronic pain, but these agents often produce adverse systemic effects, which sometimes are severe. Topical analgesics offer the potential to provide the same analgesic relief provided by oral analgesics but with minimal adverse systemic effects. This article describes the results of a systematic review of the efficacy of topical analgesics in the management of acute and chronic pain conditions. A literature search of MEDLINE/PubMed was conducted using the keywords topical analgesic AND chronic pain OR acute pain OR neuropathic pain and focused only on individual clinical trials published in English-language journals. The search identified 92 articles, of which 65 were eligible for inclusion in the review. The most commonly studied topical analgesics were nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (n=27), followed by lidocaine (n=9), capsaicin (n=6), amitriptyline (n=5), glyceryl trinitrate (n=3), opioids (n=2), menthol (n=2), pimecrolimus (n=2), and phenytoin (n=2). The most common indications were acute soft tissue injuries (n=18), followed by neuropathic pain (n=17), experimental pain (n=6), osteoarthritis and other chronic joint-related conditions (n=5), skin or leg ulcers (n=5), and chronic knee pain (n=2). Strong evidence was identified for the use of topical diclofenac and topical ibuprofen in the treatment of acute soft tissue injuries or chronic joint-related conditions, such as osteoarthritis. Evidence also supports the use of topical lidocaine in the treatment of postherpetic neuralgia and diabetic neuropathy. Currently, limited evidence is available to support the use of other topical analgesics in acute and chronic pain.

The present study reports the potential anti-rheumatoid activity of Panax ginseng head part. P. ginseng-head part BuOH fraction (PGHB) was safe in acute toxicity (LD(50)>5000mg/kg) and inhibited the partially acetic acid-induced writhes (approximately 32%, P<0.05) in mice. PGHB (500mg/kg) inhibited the acetic acid-induced extravasation of Evan's blue dye in mice by approximately 20.6% (P<0.05), and was similar to the suppressive effect of ibuprofen (27.7%) as a positive control drug. Also, PGHB reduced the carrageenan-induced paw edema at 3h after oral administration, and suppressed the production of serum IL-6 in CIA mice. This suggests that PGHB has potential analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities, and will be the supporting evidence for the potential anti-rheumatoid activity of Korean P. ginseng-head.

A systematization of the results focusing on the NSAIDs drugs interaction with the cannabinoid system was presented. Out of all the substances analyzed in the present review, acetaminophen was studied the most regarding its interferences with the cannabinoid system, mainly due to contradictory results.
Demographic, clinical, and laboratory data were prospectively collected and compared in children with noncomplicated and complicated CAP.

Forty-seven studies were included; most compared topical NSAIDs in the form of a gel, spray, or cream with a similar placebo, with 3455 participants in the overall analysis of efficacy. For all topical NSAIDs combined, compared with placebo, the number needed to treat to benefit (NNT) for clinical success, equivalent to 50% pain relief, was 4.5 (3.9 to 5.3) for treatment periods of 6 to 14 days. Topical diclofenac, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, and piroxicam were of similar efficacy, but indomethacin and benzydamine were not significantly better than placebo. Local skin reactions were generally mild and transient, and did not differ from placebo. There were very few systemic adverse events or withdrawals due to adverse events. There were insufficient data to reliably compare individual topical NSAIDs with each other or the same oral NSAID.

This paper reports the development of a rapid method for the enantioselective analysis of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug ibuprofen in human plasma by capillary electrophoresis employing the anionic cyclodextrin-modified electrokinetic chromatography mode. Sample cleanup was carried out by acidification with HCl followed by liquid-liquid extraction with hexane:isopropanol (99:1 v/v). The complete enantioselective analysis was performed within 10 min, using 100 mmol L(-1) phosphoric acid/triethanolamine buffer, pH 2.6, containing 2.0% w/v sulfated beta-cyclodextrin as chiral selector; fenoprofen, another nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, was used as internal standard. The calibration curves were linear over the concentration range of 0.25-125.0 microg mL(-1) for each enantiomer of ibuprofen. The mean recoveries for ibuprofen enantiomers were up to 85%. The enantiomers studied could be quantified at three different concentrations (0.5, 5.0 and 50.0 microg mL(-1)) with a coefficient of variation and relative error not higher than 15%. The quantitation limit was 0.2 microg mL(-1) for (+)-(S)- and (-)-(R)-ibuprofen using 1 mL of human plasma. The plasma endogenous compounds and other drugs did not interfere with the present assay. The analysis of real plasma samples obtained from a healthy volunteer after administration of 600 mg of racemic ibuprofen showed a maximum plasma level of 29.6 and 39.9 microg mL(-1) of (-)-(R)- and (+)-(S)-ibuprofen, respectively, and the area under plasma concentration-time curve AUC(0-infinity) (+)-(S)/AUC(0-infinity) (-)-(R) ratio was 1.87.
NSAIDs reduced diabetic change: GFR, albuminuria, p27, and fibronectin. The effects of ibuprofen are similar if not more beneficial than COX-2 inhibition by NS-398. This study has clinical relevance for diabetics prior to overt nephropathy. Future studies should reveal the effects of NSAIDs in a more severe disease environment.

We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, The Cochrane Library for published Cochrane reviews, Clinicaltrials.gov and PubMed, for RCTs between 1995 and 2009 in which celecoxib or rofecoxib were compared with naproxen, ibuprofen or diclofenac. All articles labelled as RCTs mentioning rofecoxib or celecoxib and one or more of the comparator drugs in the title and/or abstract were included. We extracted information on doses of both non-selective NSAIDs and selective COX-2 inhibitors used in the RCTs, and study year. The Mann-Whitney test was used to compare the difference in median dose in rofecoxib and celecoxib RCTs. Linear regression was performed to evaluate trends in dosage over time. For comparisons between COX-2-inhibitors, celecoxib trials after the 2004 market withdrawal of rofecoxib were excluded.
Participating in the study were 240 children between the ages of five and twelve years who had two or three percutaneous pins in the elbow following treatment of a supracondylar humeral fracture or a lateral humeral condyle fracture with closed reduction and percutaneous pinning. The patients were randomized into one of three groups (n = 80) allocated to receive acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or vitamin C (placebo) an hour before pin removal. A pain score was obtained and heart rate measured before pin removal, immediately following the procedure, and ten minutes after pin removal.

To assess the efficacy and adverse events of single dose dipyrone in acute postoperative pain.
Functional health literacy is founded on general and numerical literacy and practical skills and is required for the appropriate and effective management of health symptoms in children. This study aimed to assess the health literacy skills of parents and caregivers of preschool-aged children, using a progressive scenario describing a child with fever and presenting tasks relating to selection of a medicine and hypothetical dosing of their child. Participants (n = 417) from 33 childcare- and health-related sites in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Auckland completed the study. Participants' responses were largely appropriate regarding actions in response to worsening symptoms, selection of an appropriate product (from a limited range), whereby 84.5% of responses were for a single-ingredient paracetamol product and use of the package directions to state the frequency of dosing (93.1% of frequencies appropriate for paracetamol and 66.7% for ibuprofen). However, in only 50.8% of cases was an appropriate weight-based dose calculated, and doses were not measured to within 10% of the stated dose in 16.7% of cases. Future studies should focus on skill development via educational campaigns for parents and caregivers.
The quality control of drugs is generally made by HPLC. This control could be made also by capillary electrochromatography (CEC). In this paper we report the analysis by CEC of ibuprofen, a well-known anti-inflammatory non steroidic drug, and some of its impurities. The analyses were performed in a 100-microm inner diameter (I.D.) fused silica capillary, packed with RP-18 stationary phase. The mobile phase was a mixture of 100 mM formic acid solution (pH 2.5), water and acetonitrile (ACN). The ACN percentage in the mobile phase and the applied voltage were carefully studied to well resolve the drug from each impurity. The results, obtained determining ibuprofen and related compounds by CEC, showed the selectivity and efficiency of the method.
"Patent ductus arteriosus is one of most common problems that physicians caring for preterm infants have to face. Although medical and surgical treatment of PDA has been extensively investigated, results from the randomized controlled trials and metanalysis are still inconclusive and many authors therefore suggest a less aggressive attitude toward PDA. In the present review evidence for and against routine treatment of PDA are analyzed. A strict selection of those patients who are most likely to benefit from treatment is probably an appropriate strategy at this time but further studies, mainly targeted to long term outcomes, are needed to provide definitive indications."
