101. Effects of sulindac and ibuprofen in patients with chronic glomerular disease. Evidence for the dependence of renal function on prostacyclin. (Abstract)

Effects of sulindac and ibuprofen in patients with chronic glomerular disease. Evidence for the dependence of renal function on prostacyclin. We investigated whether the glomerular synthesis of prostacyclin modulates the renal blood flow and glomerular filtration rate in chronic glomerular disease. The urinary excretion of 6-keto-prostaglandin F1 alpha, a stable breakdown product of prostacyclin, was significantly (P less than 0.01) reduced in 20 women with chronic glomerular disease (...) , as compared with 19 controls, whereas excretion of urinary prostaglandin E2 was unchanged. In 10 patients randomly assigned to one week of treatment with ibuprofen, excretion of urinary 6-keto-prostaglandin F1 alpha and prostaglandin E2 was reduced by 80 per cent, the level of serum creatinine was increased by 40 per cent, and creatinine and para-aminohippurate clearances were reduced by 28 and 35 per cent, respectively. The reduction of both clearances was inversely related (P less than 0.01

102. Ibuprofen or aspirin in rheumatoid arthritis therapy. (Abstract)

Ibuprofen or aspirin in rheumatoid arthritis therapy. Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal drug with analgesic, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory properties that was recently introduced for use in antiarthritis therapy in the United States. In a year-long double-blind multiclinic trial in 885 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, ibuprofen was at least as satisfactory as aspirin, considering both efficacy and tolerance. In the majority of patients, daily doses ranged from 800 to 1,600 mg of ibuprofen (...) and 3 to 6 gm of aspirin. The drugs did not differ greatly in providing relief from arthritis symptoms, but ibuprofen was definitely better tolerated, especially in regard to gastrointestinal complaints. Seven percent of the ibuprofen group dropped out of the study because of adverse reactions, as compared with 16% of the aspirin group; 17% of the ibuprofen group and 31% of the aspirin group had gastrointestinal symptoms.
