Role of dose potency in the prediction of risk of myocardial infarction associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in the general population.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES We studied the association between the frequency, dose, and duration of different nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and the risk of myocardial infarction (MI) in the general population. We verified whether the degree of inhibition of whole blood cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 by average circulating drug levels can be a surrogate biochemical… (More)
