Arthritis, Rheumatoid | Prospective Randomized Evaluation Of Celecoxib Integrated Safety Vs Ibuprofen Or Naproxen

Arthritis, Rheumatoid research study

What is the primary objective of this study?

To answer the question of overall benefit: risk of celecoxib when compared to two most commonly prescribe traditional (non-selective) nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in the treatment of arthritis pain. For this purpose, patients with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis with or at risk of developing cardiovascular disease will be recruited. The cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and renal safety and symptomatic benefit in each treatment group will be assessed accordingly.

Who is eligible to participate?

Inclusion Criteria: - Subjects with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid Arthritis with or at risk of developing cardiovascular disease and who require and eligible for chronic, daily therapy with an NSAID to control arthritis sign and symptoms. Exclusion Criteria: - Subjects have had a recent cardiovascular event, unstable cardiovascular conditions, or any major surgery (cardiac or non-cardiac) within 3 months prior to randomization; - Subjects with medical or laboratory abnormality that would make the subject inappropriate for entry into this trial - Subjects require treatment with aspirin > 325 mg /day - Subjects with known hypersensitivity to celecoxib, ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin or esomeprazole, etc.

Which medical condition, disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury is researched?

Arthritis, Rheumatoid
