The NSAIDs indomethacin and diflunisal as scavengers of photogenerated reactive oxygen species.

Diflunisal (DFNS) and Indomethacin (IMTC) are two profusely employed NSAIDs that provide anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects in humans. The scavenging of reactive oxygen species (ROS) by both NSAIDs was systematically studied in pH 7 aqueous solution. The ROS O2 ((1)Δg), O2(•-) and H2O2, generated by visible light irradiation of Riboflavin (Rf) in the… CONTINUE READING
