Treating Arthritis Safely
New research could pave the way to safer treatments for arthritis.
Drugs used to treat arthritis, including ibuprofin, can increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.
Researchers who conducted an international study found that the arthritis drugs target an enzyme that is found in the brain, stomach, and kidneys.
Now that they know where in the body the drug is acting, they hope to develop safer, more targeted arthritis drugs.
