Effectiveness of NonSteroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs

The best known NSAID is the original and oldest, aspirin, in use since the last century before the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was formed. For this reason, aspirin has always been an over-the-counter drug. The other NSAIDs are prescription drugs except for ibuprofen (Advil, Nuprin, and others), ketoprofen (Orudis KT, Actron), and naproxen (Aleve). Other NSAIDs must be approved by the FDA for use in people with arthritis. Acetaminophen (Tylenol and others) is considered a painkiller only and is also sold over the counter. The NSAID group includes aspirin, ibuprofen (marketed under the names Motrin and Advil) and naproxen (Aleve). It does not include acetaminophen (Tylenol), which is effective against pain and fever but not against inflammation — which is a major factor in certain types of pain, such as the ache of rheumatoid arthritis.

The search for the journals was done using the most trusted websites such as yahoo and google. Upon entering the website I was able to access the MEDLINE and Cochrane website. Several studies were presented during my research, but the focus of the study is to evaluate the systematic review done by journals. Here I found a relevant study for the effectiveness of the NSAID in gastric ulcer or stomach cancer. The systematic review of the relationship of the NSAID with gastric cancer can be found in MEDLINE. A strategy of research was done to show the risk rate of the NSAID. Using the following database, Cochrane, EMBASE, and MEDLINE, the systematic review shows that the use of NSAID in pain with gastric cancer can be helpful in a dose-dependent manner. Continuing the search on these databases I was able to prove that the study done by Wang on the effect of NSAID in gastric ulcers can be proven. Continuing my research for the effectiveness of NSAID, I was able to open the website showing the systematic review using the database&nbsp.of MEDLINE, Pubmed, and Cancerlit.
