Clinical trial: comparison of the gastrointestinal safety of lumiracoxib with traditional nonselective nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs early after the initiation of treatment--findings from the Therapeutic Arthritis Research and Gastrointestinal Event Trial.

BACKGROUND: The large (n = 18 325) Therapeutic Arthritis Research and Gastrointestinal Event Trial (TARGET) study demonstrated a significant gastrointestinal benefit with lumiracoxib 400 mg o.d. (4x the recommended dose in osteoarthritis) vs. naproxen 500 mg b.d. or ibuprofen 800 mg t.d.s. AIM: To investigate how early a reduction in ulcer complications could be detected with lumiracoxib vs. nonselective nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in TARGET. METHODS: Pointwise 95% confidence intervals were generated for the between-treatment differences in Kaplan-Meier estimates for definite or probable upper gastrointestinal ulcer complications (ulcer complications) and for all ulcers. RESULTS: In patients not on aspirin, there was a significant reduction in all ulcers by day 8 and in ulcer complications by day 16 with lumiracoxib compared with both nonselective nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs combined, by day 6 (all ulcers) and day 14 (ulcer complications) vs. naproxen and by day 32 (all ulcers) and day 33 (ulcer complications) vs. ibuprofen. CONCLUSION: Even with short-term use, there are gastrointestinal safety benefits for lumiracoxib vs. nonselective nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.[1]
