NSAIDs may also induce microvascular ischaemia, leading to adherence of cellular elements to the vascular endothelium. The accumulation of activated neutrophils, together with the reduced blood flow might ultimately lead to ischaemic cell damage predisposing to ulceration. In animal models, inhibition of nitric oxide (NO) synthesis promotes NSAID-induced injury, while NO donors reduce NSAID toxicity. Since COX-2 is induced by inflammatory stimuli, it is likely that the anti-inflammatory action of NSAIDs results from the inhibition of COX-2, while the sideeffects are largely owing to the inhibition of COX-1.
Sucralfate (4–6 g/day) is about as effective as antacids in the prevention of stress ulcer bleeding.
