Influence of two non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs on lipolysis and on plasma post-heparin lipoprotein lipase activity in normal man.


Indomethacin 50 mg i.v. or p.o. and diclofenac sodium 50 mg p.o. produced a prompt and significant increase in plasma free fatty acid concentration. In 10 subjects who took indomethacin 150 mg/d p.o. for 3 days, plasma post-heparin lipoprotein lipase activity was also significantly increased. The same effect occurred in 9 subjects treated for 3 days with diclofenac sodium 50 mg t.d.s. Since both indomethacin and diclofenac sodium are potent inhibitors of prostaglandin synthetase, these findings are consistent with the hypothesis tht prostaglandins are involved in the feed-back regulation of lipolysis, and mediate the inhibitory effect of lipolysis on lipoprotein lipase activity.
