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.

Derivatives of naproxen, diclofenac, and indomethacin which can release H2S have been reported [ — ].

However, we emphasize the vastropati of the uncoupling of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation as a common first step in NSAID-induced mucosal injury both in stomach and in small intestine. The other isoform, COX-2, is triggered by cell damage, various proinflammatory cytokines, and tumor-derived factors [ 3738 ].

Licofelone has also been found to be effective because of its antithrombotic and platelet aggregation inhibiting functions [ ]. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, gastrointestinal mucosal injury, mitochondria, lipid peroxidation, reactive oxygen species.

This further leads to occlusion of gastric microvessels leading to reduced gastric blood flow and release of oxygen-derived-free radicals [ 54 ]. Any patient who presents with new onset of back or shoulder pain, who hastropati NSAIDs, and who presents with signs and symptoms of a peptic ulcer must be referred to the MD.

Mediators of Inflammation

Cryer B, Spechler SJ. These strategies are based on multiple risk factors associated with NSAID-induced Gastopati complications including age of the patient, simultaneous medications, prior medical history, and Helicobacter pylori infection. Some preliminary reports have shown that bovine colostrum has the ability to prevent NSAID-induced gastric ulcers [].


Errors and omissions excepted.

Omeprazole was followed by other PPIs like lansoprazole, pantoprazole, rabeprazole, and so forth [ 66 ]. Bjarnason I, Hayllar J.

COX-1 is found throughout all tissues of the body whereas COX-2 is in the area of inflammation such as in an area of osteoarthritis contributing to the inflammation. Free oxygen radicals react with poly unsaturated fatty acids of the mucosa leading to lipid peroxidation and tissue damage [ 54 ].

There are, however, prospects for selective cyclooxygenase 2 inhibitors. The surface epithelial cells are served as the second line of defense. That is usually the journal article where the information was first stated. Moreover, these agents are not prescribed to patients suffering from H.

Robert A, Asano T. Though PPIs can help with gastric irritation, it is also found that they can induce risk of osteoporosis which often cause hip fractures in elderly patients as well as increase cardiovascular risk due to low serum magnesium levels in the blood. Prescription of PPIs is only recommended for patients on antiplatelet therapy who are at risk for gastrointestinal complications [ 25 ].

Mucosal blood flow within the gastric submucosal layer comprises the post-epithelial defense mechanism.

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. Common symptoms of this disease include abdominal pain, diarrhea, blood in the stool and vomiting and can even cause rectal or gastrointestinal bleeding, loss of appetite and liver inflammation.


Secondly, the inhibition of oxidative phosphorylation causes dysfunction of the tight intracellular junctions and increases the intestinal permeability. Gastroduodenal mucosal injury in patients taking low-dose aspirin and the role of gastric mucoprotective drugs: Some of the adverse effects of NSAIDs may be asymptotic, but in many cases there are reports of life-threatening incidents [ 10 ].

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

NSAIDs also have a direct cytotoxic effect on gastric mucosal cell causing lesions and injury [ 4243 ]. ROS from mitochondria play an important role in the release of cytochrome c and other pro-apoptotic proteins, which can trigger caspase activation and apoptosis. COX-1 is constitutively expressed and is responsible for the normal physiological protection of gastric mucosa. Several gastropai have been adopted for addressing the prevention and cure of the possible side-effects produced by the NSAIDs in the gut.

NSAID Gastropathy

H2-receptor antagonists and proton pump inhibitors PPIs are most commonly used because they not only reduce acid secretion but also enhance gastric pH and have a role in scavenging-free radicals [ 5859 ]. Physiopedia is not a substitute for professional advice or expert medical services from a qualified healthcare provider. It has also been observed that NSAIDs are gastdopati against pain because of their ability to inhibit PG-mediated cerebral vascular vasodilation [ 2930 ].
