Genetic Tools to Tailor Cancer Prevention by NSAIDs

Abstract: It was shown that NSAIDs, such as aspirin or Celebrex, are effective cancer preventive agents when taken regularly. However, the long-term use of NSAIDs, the cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitors, may have significant adverse effects - primarily on the gastrointestinal (inhibiting COX-1) and cardiovascular (inhibiting COX-2) systems. Genetic analysis of enzymes (including COX) involved in the prostaglandin synthesis should reveal and predict a person's benefits vs. toxicity resulting from the NSAID treatment. ... Read more
