40 Christoph and Buschmann Colon cancer NSAIDs and COX-2 inhibitors show good potencies and efficacies in mild to moderate pain conditions and in inflammation. Many combinations of NSAIDs with other principles are on the market or under development. Misoprostol (on the market) and NO donors (under development) reduce the side-effects of NSAIDs on the gastric mucosa and opioid analgesics (standard WHO ladder of pain treatment) add to the analgesic potency of NSAIDs. ,2000). , 2001). In addition to the treatment of pain and inflammation, COX-2 inhibitors might be of benefit in other indications.

However, the methodology utilized in NSAID modification does not follow a general scheme. 08 |uM (human) Classic NSAIDs such as indomethacin possess both COX1 and COX-2 inhibiting affinity. Various attempts have been made to shift the enzyme selectivity of indomethacin from COX-1 to COX-2 while keeping the potency at the same level and reducing the unwanted side-effects at the same time. In principle, the strategy consisted of introducing larger substituents to fit the active site volume of COX-2 resulting in compounds like L-748780.
