Nano-formulated NSAIDs Provide Relief at Lower Doses

Multiple studies show nano-formulation, which reduces particle size and enhances drug dissolution, of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can provide relief at lower doses and a lower cost, according to findings presented at the annual meeting of the American College of Rheumatology.

One study presented found lower doses of naproxen were as effective at reducing pain as standard traditional doses. The time to pain relief was also reduced at just over one hour for the nano-formulation of naproxen 400 mg, more than three hours for placebo and an hour and a half for the standard naproxen 500 mg dose.
