ABSTRACT
The article discusses a research study regarding the effect of nonselective nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) on cardiovascular events in patients with Alzheimer disease. Randomized placebo-controlled trials were conducted in which the effect of drugs such as naproxen, nabumetone, indomethacin, ibuprofen, and diclofenac, was examined. In patients with joint disease or Alzheimer disease, NSAIDs do not increase the risk for cardiovascular events or death.
