Common Drug for Arthritis Treatment Linked to Heart Valve Issues
A new study finds a link between a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug for arthritis called celecoxib (brand name Celebrex) and heart valve issues.
Having analyzed thousands of electronic medical records of patients with the mentioned condition, a team of researchers from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, US, discovered that usage of celecoxib was associated with the higher chance of aortic stenosis.
Also, after a number of laboratory tests, the researchers revealed that treating aortic valve cells with the aforementioned drug lead to higher levels of calcification of the cells.
First author of the study Meghan A. Bowler, Ph.D, says: “Calcification in the aortic valve can take many years. So, if you're at a higher risk for it, you might want to consider taking a different [pain reliever] or rheumatoid arthritis treatment.”
