We have assessed the efficacy of 0.5% piroxicam collyrium applied for 15 days to the eyes of rabbits in which uveitis had been experimentally induced. The results demonstrate the capability of the drug to easily overcome the ocular barrier. On the 30th day, a clear regression of the uveitis symptoms was observed, the hyperaemia having completely disappeared. By means of radioimmunological assay (RIA), it was found that the increased PGF2 alpha concentration in the aqueous humour had returned to normal levels.

Foci of aberrant and/or hexosaminidase-negative crypts in rat colon are putative precancerous lesions that have been proposed as biomarkers for short-term bioassays for chemical carcinogens and chemopreventive agents. The ability of a substance to reduce the yield of azoxymethane (AOM)-induced foci in the colon of male Fischer 344 rats, was evaluated as a screening assay for chemopreventive agents. Twenty-eight test agents were administered continuously in the diet from the start of the experiments until the animals were killed 35 days later. AOM was s.c. administered either as 15 mg/kg body wt on days 7 and 14 or as 30 mg/kg body wt on day 7 of the experiment. Foci of aberrant crypts were evaluated in whole mounts of methylene blue-stained colons. AOM induced twice as many foci when administered between 8.40 and 11.00 a.m. than between 2.45 and 5.55 p.m. Calcium salts of carbonate, chloride and glucarate decreased the yield of AOM-induced foci while the acidic salts of lactate and phosphate did not inhibit the formation of foci. Dimethyl-fumarate, fumaric acid, genistein, piroxicam, simethicone, sodium suramin and sulindac reduced the yield of AOM-induced foci of aberrant crypts, with genistein being the most potent. Only piroxicam of this group has previously been shown to inhibit colon cancer, while the rest have yet to be evaluated. Ibuprofen did not inhibit the formation of foci, although it has been reported to inhibit AOM-induced colon cancer in rats. Piroxicam and sulindac appeared to reduce preferentially hexosaminidase-negative foci of aberrant crypts, compared with those of apparently normal morphology. The AOM-induced foci of aberrant crypts assay appears suitable for screening chemicals for chemopreventive action.

Piroxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug currently available for the treatment of various rheumatic diseases. Twenty-eight patients with acute gouty arthritis were treated with a single daily dose of 40 mg piroxicam for a period of 5 days. The majority of patients showed rapid improvement with analgesic effectiveness demonstrated 3 hours after first dose administration. No significant side affects were observed. On the basis of this study, piroxicam was found to be an effective medication for the treatment of acute gouty arthritis.

The effect of cortisol (10 and 20 mg kg-1 day-1, sc), indomethacin (2 and 4 mg kg-1 day-1, po) and piroxicam (10 and 20 mg kg-1 day-1, po) on the proliferative component of inflammation was investigated in normal, diabetic, adrenalectomized and diabetic-adrenalectomized rats using the cotton pellet test. Whereas cortisol was equally effective in preventing granulation tissue formation in all groups of animals, indomethacin and piroxicam were much less active in animals with hormonal dysfunctions. Indomethacin and piroxicam reduced thymus weight of normal and diabetic animals as much as cortisol. This was taken to be a strong indication of the effect of these non-steroidal drugs on the adrenal cortex leading to increased secretion of adrenal corticosteroids. We conclude that at least part of the anti-inflammatory effect of indomethacin and piroxicam, in the present experiments, can be ascribed to the release of endogenous corticosteroids. This would explain the decreased sensitivity of adrenalectomized animals to the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used. An additional component, however, seems to be necessary for the full expression of the anti-inflammatory effect of these drugs, since diabetic animals were also less responsive to them. When both components were absent, as in diabetic-adrenalectomized animals, indomethacin and piroxicam were practically devoid of an anti-inflammatory effect.

A double-blind, double-dummy controlled study to compare the clinical efficacy and gastric tolerability of salsalate and piroxicam in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis was performed. Twenty-three patients were treated with 1.5 g salsalate twice daily and 20 with 20 mg piroxicam (taken after the evening meal) for a period of 4 weeks. Patients were submitted to gastroscopy at the start and end of treatment; only patients who presented a normal baseline gastroscopy were admitted to the trial. At the end of the planned treatment period, a statistically significant improvement of all clinical variables was observed in both treatment groups, the difference between the two drugs not being statistically significant. Seven (37%) patients treated with salsalate complained of tinnitus. The results show that salsalate and piroxicam have equal efficacy in relieving the symptoms of arthritis.
Carboplatin with piroxicam could be considered for patients with gross disease when more traditional therapies, such as surgery or radiation therapy, are declined or are not available. In the loco-regional control setting, prospective randomised blinded studies with matched control groups are required to determine if chemotherapy has a role in the treatment of these types of cancer.

The recent discovery of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), an isoenzyme associated mainly with inflammation created the need to reevaluate cyclooxygenase inhibitors with reliable screening methods. In the present study we standardized a technique to determine the IC50S of cyclooxygenase inhibitors on recombinant human COX-1 and COX-2 expressed in mammalian cells and used it to study the compounds tenoxicam, aspirin and indomethacin. The IC50S of aspirin, indomethacin and tenoxicam for human COX-1 were 0.41 +/- 0.07 microgram/ml, 0.008 +/- 0.003 microgram/ml, and 7.94 +/- 3.28 micrograms/ml, respectively, and for human COX-20.64 +/- 0.16 microgram/ml, 0.09 +/- 0.05 microgram/ml, and 10.61 +/- 1.50 micrograms/ml, for aspirin, indomethacin, and tenoxicam. Tenoxicam had the lowest IC50hCOX-2/IC50hCOX-1 ratio (1.34), followed by aspirin (1.53) and indomethacin (10.82). The system described in the present study provides a simple and efficient way to determine the specificity of NSAID inhibition for each of the human cyclooxygenase isoenzymes separately.
Means and 95% confidence intervals revealed no statistically significant differences in total costs between aceclofenac and other NSAIDs, with the exception of piroxicam, despite substantial differences in drug acquisition costs. The ICF for aceclofenac was lower than that for all other comparators, and differences in ICF between aceclofenac 200 mg/day and diclofenac 150 mg/day, indomethacin 100 mg/day, naproxen 1000 mg/day, tenoxicam 20 mg/day or ketoprofen 150 mg/day were statistically significant.

The healing process of muscle strains and the effect of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory medication were studied using an experimental animal model. A standardized strain of the tibialis anterior muscle in adult male rats was produced by a controlled stretch of the muscle. Groups I and II underwent a unilateral strain of the tibialis anterior muscle and were immobilized in the postinjury period. The rats in Group II were fed piroxicam in the postinjury period. Group III underwent a sham procedure and were also immobilized. At 0, 2, 4, and 11 days postinjury both injured and contralateral control muscles were evaluated by determining tensile strength characteristics and histologic appearance. Group I showed a significant drop in maximum failure load to 25.7% of the control leg at Day 2 with a gradual return to the level of Group III at Days 4 and 11 (40.9% and 50.1%). Group II showed a similar drop but was still stronger than Group I at 2 days with 40.8% of the control leg and continued to drop until 4 days postinjury (33.7%). Histology showed a delay in inflammatory reaction and muscle regeneration in Group II. At 11 days both Groups I and II showed regenerated muscle fibers bridging the entire defect and an increase in endomyseal fibrosis. It is concluded that muscle strains continue to weaken in the early postinjury period. Non-steroidal antiinflammatory medication, such as piroxicam, might delay muscle regeneration.
