What is an NSAID? Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory drug. In this paper, the mechanism of action of NSAIDs and their critical gastrointestinal complications have been reviewed. This paper also provides. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the most highly prescribed drugs to decrease NSAID-induced GI damage including use of.

Mucosal blood flow within the gastric submucosal layer comprises the post-epithelial defense bsaid. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are the gaztropati commonly prescribed drugs for arthritis, inflammation, and cardiovascular protection. Reductions in prescribing arising from a prior authorization scheme show that this can be achieved. H2 receptor antagonists are effective in preventing duodenal ulcer but not gastric ulcer.

NO formed by the action of nitric oxide synthase increases mucus and bicarbonate secretion as well as microcirculation and decreases neutrophil-endothelial adherence [ ].

The pre-epithelial defense mechanism consists mainly of a mucous layer that contains mucous, bicarbonate and surface active phospholipids, and prevents epithelial cells from the contact with luminal noxious agents such as gastric acid.

Received Jul 1; Accepted Jul The MPTP is a protein pore that is induced in the membranes of mitochondria under certain pathological conditions or pharmacological agents.

Inhibition of PG synthesis by NSAIDs leads to simultaneous activation of the lipoxygenase pathway and increased synthesis of leukotrienes Figure 1 [ 48 — 50 ]. These strategies are based on multiple risk factors associated with NSAID-induced GI complications including age of the patient, simultaneous medications, prior medical history, and Helicobacter pylori infection. It significantly improved indomethacin-induced gastric ulceration and prevented NSAID-induced increase in leukotriene levels in gastric mucosa [ ].

The most common symptom is heartburn but those with GERD can also have a dry cough, asthma-like symptoms, and trouble swallowing. However, recent clinical demonstrated the prevalence of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs-induced small intestinal mucosal injury is more often than previously expected.


While inhibition of COX allows NSAIDs to have their anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties by blocking proinflammatory prostaglandins, it also blocks prostaglandins that protect the gastrointestinal system. Peptic ulcer disease and related disorders. In gastric juice, they are non-ionized and lipid soluble. View at Google Scholar Y. Gastric ulceration induced by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is a neutrophil-dependent process.

Their analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic actions may be beneficial; however, they are associated with severe side effects including gastrointestinal injury and peptic ulceration. COX-2 inhibitors are an option but they are more expensive.

Bjarnason I, Hayllar J. Several approaches have been adopted for addressing the prevention and cure of the possible side-effects produced by the NSAIDs in the gut. Scand J Rheumatol Suppl. An interaction between prostaglandins and growth factors, as well as the synthesis of antiproliferative products of arachidonic acid metabolism may be involved.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug gastropathy: causes and treatment.

Free oxygen radicals react with poly unsaturated fatty acids of the mucosa leading gasttropati lipid peroxidation and tissue damage [ 54 ].

Recently a diclofenac prodrug, 1- 2,6-dichlorophenyl indolinone, has been demonstrated with anti-inflammatory properties that can decrease PGE2 levels, COX-2 expression, and gastrropati [ ]. PG-dependent mechanism and non-PG-dependent mechanism. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug-associated gastropathy disorder NSAID-associated gastropathy Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug-associated gastropathy Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug-associated gastropathy disorder Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug-associated gastropathy.

T39.395 Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug-associated gastropathy (disorder)

Prescription of PPIs is only recommended for patients on antiplatelet therapy who are at risk for gastrointestinal complications [ 25 ]. View at Google Scholar W. The relative physiological importance of PGs in maintaining mucosal defense system between stomach and small intestine may contribute to the experimental and clinical results of NSAID-induced mucosal injuries.


Further clinical trials are in progress in osteoarthritis patients [ ]. Effect of salicylic acid and calcium on mitochondrial functions. Errors and omissions excepted.

In most cases Physiopedia articles are a secondary source and so should not be used as references. The increased intestinal permeability The mechanisms that the inhibition of oxidative phophorylation increases intestinal permeability are not well understood, but are explained as follows: Role of gastric acid secretion in progression of acute gastric erosions induced by ischemia-reperfusion into gastric ulcers.

Our study in vitro using gastric RGM1 cells also confirmed that indomethacin treatment induced a decrease of mitochondrial transmembrane potential and induced apoptotic protein activations cleaved caspase 3 and 9which was inhibited by an antiulcer drug rebamipide Fig. However, we emphasize the importance of the uncoupling of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation as a common first step in NSAID-induced mucosal injury both in stomach and in small intestine.

In general, they contain an acidic nssid mostly carboxylic acids or enols. NSAIDs gatsropati commonly administered for treatment against inflammatory diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, dysmenorrhea, and ischemic cerebrovascular disorders [ 5 ]. Preliminary trial of rebamipide for prevention of low-dose aspirin-induced gastric injury gastropatti healthy subjects: Prostaglandin E prevents indomethacin-induced gastric and intestinal damage through different EP receptor subtypes.

View at Google Scholar N. Identification of the protective factors for gastrointestinal complications associated with NSAIDs still poses a serious gawtropati. Use of these drugs in certain types of cancer treatment has also been gastropatl recently [ 67 ].

The pathophysiology of NSAID-induced small intestinal injuries was less well understood than that of gastric injuries.
