Promising New NSAID-Derivative May Be Well-Tolerated by Chronic Pain Sufferers

Long-term use of naproxen (ALEVE), a type of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), is often prescribed for chronic pain conditions such as osteoarthritis. However, because of NSAID-related gastrointestinal problems including stomach and intestinal inflammation and ulcers, many are unable to tolerate ongoing use. A new study, published in the American Journal of Physiology–Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology, finds that a naproxen-derivative may provide both symptom relief and gastrointestinal protection. The research is highlighted as one of this month’s “best of the best” as part of the American Physiological Society’s APSselect program.

Rare Autoimmune Disorder Found to Have a Common Form

AIRE_info_Abramson_Weizmann.jpg

Scientists from the Weizmann Institute and the University of Bergen have found that a hereditary autoimmune disease (autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 1), thought to be very rare, may have a less severe form that affects at least one in 1,000 people. The results suggest that other autoimmune conditions may be tied to mutations in a single gene.
