Abstract

Objective Acute and chronic use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can increase gastrointestinal permeability. Celecoxib, which selectively inhibits the enzyme cyclooxygenase-2, is a novel anti-inflammatory drug with minimal gastrointestinal toxic effects while retaining anti-inflammatory efficacy. Our aim was to assess the potential effects of celecoxib on gastric permeability in comparison with placebo and ibuprofen.
