Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are known to increase the risk of cardiovascular (CV) and renal incidences, especially at higher doses and upon long term use. However, the available reports are criticized for lack of specificity, grouping of vastly different outcomes together and ignoring the heterogeneity among NSAIDs. In this systematic(More)
Both omeprazole and its S enantiomer (esomeprazole) have been available and used to treat  symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and conditions associated with excessive stomach acid secretion for more than a decade. Controversy exists over improved efficacy of S enantiomer (esomeprazole) over parent racemate (omeprazole). However, a comparison(More)
A co-morbidity of inflammatory conditions is increased cardio-renal risks. Additionally, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which are used to treat pain and inflammation are also associated with increase in such risks. We hypothesized that inflammation and NSAIDs impose the cardio-renal risk through the activation of the renin-angiotensin-system(More)
