COX-2 inhibitors are safe alternatives in patients with cross-reactive non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) hypersensitivity. These drugs are recommended to these patients after negative drug provocation tests (DPTs). However, cumulative data on encouraging results about the safety of COX-2 inhibitors in the majority of these patients bring the idea as to whether a DPT is always mandatory for introducing these drugs in all patients with cross-reactive NSAID hypersensitivity.
Meloxicam at doses of 0.05 and 0.075 mg kg(-1) day(-1) PO was significantly different from placebo for the pre-defined primary outcome measure (i.e., AUC(0-30) hours of total force). All tested meloxicam doses were lower than placebo for the subjective outcome measures (i.e., AUC(0-30) hours of AS, LS, and VAS).

We present a 33-year-old patient with double-sided HLA B27-positive sacroiliitis, which was diagnosed by magnetic resonance tomography. Since about 10 years he therefore had pain in the iliosacral region. Numerous sessions of physiotherapy, a cure treatment, and treatment with sulfasalazine and doxycycline were not effective. The patient was dependent on the daily intake of the nonsteroidal antirheumatics meloxicam 2 x 7.5 mg and ibuprofen 400-800 mg and the analgetic tramadol 50-150 mg, but evening and night pain and morning stiffness persisted under this treatment.

A series of oxicam non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been shown to be neuroprotective against 1-methyl-4-phenyl pyridinium in human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells via the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt pathway independent of cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibition. The present study endeavored to establish this novel effect of meloxicam (MLX), an oxicam NSAID, in a mouse Parkinson's disease (PD) model using 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP). Male C57BL/6 mice, which received MPTP (30 mg/kg/day; s.c.) for 5 consecutive days (chronic model) with 10-day follow-up saline administrations, showed significant motor dysfunction in the pole test due to reduced tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) protein levels in the brain on day 16 after MPTP/saline treatment. Daily coadministrations of MLX (10mg/kg/day; i.p.) and MPTP for the first 5 days and follow-up 10 days with MLX administrations alone (MPTP/MLX treatment) significantly ameliorated MPTP-induced behavioral abnormalities in mice. Concomitant decreases of TH protein levels in the striatum and midbrain of MPTP/MLX-treated mice were not only significantly (p<0.01 and p<0.05, respectively) ameliorated but phosphorylated Akt (pAkt473) expression in the midbrain was also significantly (p<0.01) increased in the midbrain when compared with MPTP/saline-treated mice. These results suggest that MLX, an oxicam NSAID, attenuated dopaminergic neuronal death in the experimental MPTP-PD model by maintenance of the Akt-signaling. Oxicam NSAIDs may serve as potential drugs for PD treatment via a novel mechanism of action.

The aim of this study was to evaluate a possible synergism between melatonin and meloxicam in up-regulating the immune response in male Wistar rats infected with Trypanosoma cruzi during immunosuppression phenomenon, which characterizes the acute phase of the Chagas' disease. Male Wistar rats were infected with the Y strain of T. cruzi. Experiments were performed on 7, 14 and 21 days post-infection. Several immunological parameters were evaluated including gamma-interferon (IFN-gamma), interleukin-2 (IL-2), nitric oxide (NO) and prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)). The combined treatment with melatonin and meloxicam significantly enhanced the release of IL-2 and INF-gamma into animals' serum, when compared with the infected control groups during the course of infection. Furthermore, the blockade of PGE(2) synthesis and the increased release of NO by macrophage cells from T. cruzi-infected animals contributed to regulate the production of Th1 subset cytokines significantly reducing the parasitaemia in animals treated with the combination of both substances. Therefore, our results suggest that the association of melatonin and meloxicam was more effective in protecting animals against the harmful actions of T. cruzi infection as compared with the treatments of meloxicam or melatonin alone.
The profusely employed drugs Piroxicam (Piro), Tenoxicam (Teno) and Meloxicam (Melo) belonging to the non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) family of the Oxicams (Oxis) were studied in the frame of two specific conditions: (a) their ROS scavenging ability, in relation to a possible biological antioxidant action and (b) their photodegradability under environmental conditions, in the context of Oxi-contaminated waters. Singlet molecular oxygen (O2((1)Δg)) and superoxide radical anion (O2(-)) were photogenerated through Riboflavin (Rf, vitamin B2)-photosensitization in aqueous and aqueous-methanolic solutions in the presence of Oxi concentrations in the range 50-500 μM. The visible-light absorber vitamin is currently present in all types of natural waters and constitutes the most frequent endogenous photosensitizer in mammals. Hence, it was employed in order to mimic both natural sceneries of interest. All three Oxis quench O2((1)Δg) with rate constants in the order of 10(8)M(-1)s(-1) showing a significant photodegradation efficiency given by a dominant reactive fashion for deactivation of the oxidative species. Although this is not a desirable property in the context of photoprotection upon prolonged photoirradiation, constitutes in fact a promissory aspect for the degradation NSAIDs, in waste waters. Indirect evidence indicates that Melo is also oxidized through a O2(-)-mediated component. The simultaneous presence of Piro plus tryptophan or tyrosine under Rf-photosensitizing conditions, which has taken the amino acids as photooxidizable model residues in a proteinaceous environment, indicates that the NSAID induces a protection of the biomolecules against photodynamic degradation.

Cini, G. Giorgi, A. Cinquantini, C. Rossi, M. Sabat, Inorg. Chem. 29 (1990) 5197-5200, for synthesis and structural characterization, DMF=dimethylformamide] (NSC #624662) by using a panel of ca. 50 human cancer cells, showed growth inhibition factor GI(50) values as low as 20microM against several cancer lines, with an average value 54.4microM. The activity of 1 is larger against ovarian cancer cells, non-small lung cancer cells, melanoma cancer cells, and central nervous system cancer cells. The widely used anticancer drug carboplatin (cis-diammine(1,1-cyclobutanedicarboxylato)platinum(II)) (NSC #241240) has average GI(50) value of 102microM. The reactions of copper(II)-acetate with other NSAIDs from the oxicam family were tested and crystalline complexes were obtained and characterized. Isoxicam (H(2)ISO=4-hydroxy-2-methyl-N-(5-methylisoxazol-3-yl)-2H-1,2-benzothiazine-3-carboxamide 1,1-dioxide) produced [Cu(HISO)(2)].0.5DMF, 2.0.5DMF (DMF=dimethylfomamide). The coordination arrangement is square-planar and the HISO(-) anions behave as ambi-dentate chelators via O(amide),N(isoxazole) and O(enolate),O(amide) donors. Meloxicam (H(2)MEL=4-hydroxy-2-methyl-N-(5-methyl-1,3-thiazol-2-yl)-2H-1,2-benzothiazine-3-carboxamide 1,1-dioxide) produced [Cu(HMEL)(2)(DMF)].0.25H(2)O, 3.0.25H(2)O. The coordination arrangement is square-pyramidal, the equatorial donors being O(amide),N(thiazole) from two HMEL(-) anions and the apical donor being O(DMF). Unexpectedly, cinnoxicam (HCIN=2-methyl-1,1-dioxido-3-[(pyridin-2-ylamino)carbonyl]-2H-1,2-benzothiazin-4-yl-(3-phenylacrylate)) produced [Cu(MBT)(2)(PPA)(2)] (MBT=3-(methoxycarbonyl)-2-methyl-2H-1,2-benzothiazin-4-olate 1,1-dioxide, PPA=3-phenyl-N-pyridin-2-ylacrylamide).

Membrane fusion is an essential process guiding many important biological events, which most commonly requires the aid of proteins and peptides as fusogenic agents. Small drug induced fusion at low drug concentration is a rare event. Only three drugs, namely, meloxicam (Mx), piroxicam (Px), and tenoxicam (Tx), belonging to the oxicam group of non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been shown by us to induce membrane fusion successfully at low drug concentration. A better elucidation of the mechanism and the effect of different parameters in modulating the fusion process will allow the use of these common drugs to induce and control membrane fusion in various biochemical processes. In this study, we monitor the effect of lipid headgroup size mismatch in the bilayer on oxicam NSAIDs induced membrane fusion, by introducing dimyristoylphosphatidylethanolamine (DMPE) in dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) small unilamellar vesicles (SUVs). Such headgroup mismatch affects various lipid parameters which includes inhibition of trans-bilayer motion, domain formation, decrease in curvature, etc. Changes in various lipidic parameters introduce defects in the membrane bilayer and thereby modulate membrane fusion. SUVs formed by DMPC with increasing DMPE content (10, 20, and 30 mol %) were used as simple model membranes. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) were used to characterize the DMPC-DMPE mixed vesicles. Fluorescence assays were used to probe the time dependence of lipid mixing, content mixing, and leakage and also used to determine the partitioning of the drugs in the membrane bilayer. How the inhibition of trans-bilayer motion, heterogeneous distribution of lipids, decrease in vesicle curvature, etc., arising due to headgroup mismatch affect the fusion process has been isolated and identified here. Mx amplifies these effects maximally followed by Px and Tx. This has been correlated to the enhanced partitioning of the hydrophobic Mx compared to the more hydrophilic Px and Tx in the mixed bilayer.

The effects of the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor, meloxicam, on tumour growth and cachexia have been determined in 2 established murine adenocarcinomas (MAC). At a dose level of 2.5 and 5.0 mgkg(-1), meloxicam produced pronounced inhibition of the growth of the MAC13 tumour, increasing the tumour volume doubling time from 2 to 5 days. Meloxicam also suppressed growth of the MAC16 tumour, which is generally refractory to standard cytotoxic agents, increasing the tumour volume doubling time from 1.5 to 2.5 days at dose levels of 0.5 and 1.0 mgkg(-1). Cachexia was also effectively attenuated at these dose levels. To investigate whether meloxicam exerted a direct effect on the cachectic process, studies on protein degradation were carried out using C(2)C(12) mouse myoblasts in response to a proteolysis-inducing factor (PIF). PIF produced maximum protein degradation at a concentration of 4.2 nM, and this was effectively attenuated by meloxicam at concentrations greater than 1 microM. This suggests that meloxicam may be capable of directly antagonizing the process of muscle catabolism in cachexia.

Inducible (calcium-independent) nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) are important in the regulation of the function of different organs during infection. A single dose of lipopolysaccharide (LPS; 5 mg/kg ip) within 6 h increased NOS activity (20%) and prostaglandin E (PGE) content (100%) in submandibular glands (SMG) and blocked stimulated salivary secretion in adult male rats. The administration of an iNOS synthesis inhibitor, aminoguanidine (AG), with LPS decreased NOS activity and PGE content. Furthermore, the administration of meloxicam (MLX), an inhibitor of COX-2, blocked the increase in PGE and the production of NO. The incubation of slices of SMG in the presence of 3-morpholinosydnonimine, a donor of NO, increased the release of PGE highly significantly. The incubation of SMG in the presence of a PGE(1) analog (alprostadil) increased the production of NO. These results indicate that LPS activates NOS, leading to NO release, which activates COX, generating PGEs that act back to further activate NOS, causing further generation of PGEs by activation of COX. Because the alprostadil administration inhibited stimulated salivation, LPS-induced inhibition of salivation appears to be caused by increased PGE production. Diminished salivary secretion produces poor oral health; thus the use of COX-2 inhibitors to counteract the effects of inhibited salivation should be considered.

Forty-three Sprague-Dawley rats were assigned to one of four treatment groups (sham-operation, BDL, daily meloxicam injections following BDL, and daily meloxicam injection without BDL). Liver histopathology was analyzed with hematoxylin-eosin and Masson's trichrome staining. The expression of alpha-smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA), transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1), and COX-2 were measured with immunohistochemical staining. The levels of COX-2, TGF-beta1, and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) production were measured with the Western blot method and an enzyme immunoassay.

1. The metabolic fate of 14C-labelled meloxicam was investigated in the urine and bile of rat following oral and intraduodenal administration. Structural elucidation of metabolites was performed by nuclear magnetic resonance, mass spectrometry (electron impact and fast atom bombardment). 2. A mean total of 76.3% 14C-radioactivity was recovered in urine over 96 h, with the remainder in the faeces. The metabolic pattern in the excreta was independent of dose (1 versus 10 mg/kg) and collection period (0-8 versus 24-48 h). In bile one of the main metabolites was absent. 3. Meloxicam underwent extensive metabolism with only small amounts of unchanged drug recovered in the urine (< 0.5%) or bile (4.5%). Principal routes of biotransformation were: oxidation of the 5-methyl group of the N-heteroaryl-carbamoyl side chain to yield the 5'-hydroxymethyl derivative (33% of metabolites in urine, 22% in bile) and the 5'-carboxy derivative (16% in urine, 49% in bile). Oxidative cleavage of the benzothiazine-ring yielded an oxamic acid metabolite in urine (23.5%), which was not present in bile. 4. The introduction of a methyl-group into the N-heteroaryl-carbamoyl side chain increased lipophilicity and facilitated metabolic excretion compared with structurally related compounds.
