Topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in the treatment of osteoarthritis: A short review (pp. 257-260) $45.00
Authors:  Sosa George and Anitha Roy
Abstract:
Osteoarthritis or osteoarthrosis is a progressive degenerative disorder of joints caused by gradual loss of cartilage, resulting in the development of bony spurs and subchondral cysts at the margins of the joints. It is accompanied by pain which is aggravated on movement. During later stages it also causes inflammation at the joint site. Non-steroidal anti- inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are widely used in the treatment of osteoarthritis. Oral NSAIDs have side effects, such as gastric ulceration, sensitivity to sunlight exposure, kidney disturbances etc. It is clinically supported that the topical application of analgesics is as effective as that of oral administration and also there is less incidence of side effects with their usage. Many NSAIDs like ibuprfen, diclofenac, ketoprofen, felbinac, piroxicam etc. are available today as various topical formulations in the form of gels, gel patches, sprays, foams, creams, ointments etc. They are effective and at the same time well tolerated by the patient. This article reviews the application of topical NSAIDs for the treatment of osteoarthritis
