Nonsteroidal Ant Inflammatory Drugs-nsaids

COX-1 and COX-2 isozymes catalyze the production of eicosanoids, such as prostaglandins, prostacyclin and thromboxane from arachidonic acids. Non selective NSAIDs inhibit both COX-1 and COX-2 thus suppress the inflammatory mediators. Selective COX-2 avoid
