In animal experimental model the ulcerogenic effect of non-selective and selective inhibitors of cyclooxigenase has been estimated. The all tested remedies influenced morphology of liver and mucosa of stomach. Meanwhile the reaction of each animal on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs was individual. It has been elucidated that ketorolac significantly down-regulated prostaglandin E2 production in gut mucosa. Nimesulide (selective non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) significantly up-regulated the activity of aspartat-aminotransferase in serum of experimental rats. The mechanism of nimesulide hepatotoxicity is being discussed.
