ABSTRACT
The article discusses research being done on the cardiorenal effects of celecoxib as compared with the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs diclofenac and ibuprofen. It references a study by A. Whelton et al published in the October 2006 issue of "Kidney International" journal. The study found that the use of supratherapeutic doses of celecoxib appears to be associated with a reduced risk of cardiorenal adverse effects compared with therapeutic doses of ibuprofen and diclofenac in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
