Abstract

The review gives and analyzes the data of a number of studies evaluating the safety and efficacy of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs on the upper gastrointestinal tract. Particular emphasis is laid on the results of the multinational etoricoxib and diclofenac arthritis long-term (MEDAL) study program. The randomized MEDAL study has shown that etoricoxib has more benefits than diclofenac.
