Therapeutic potential of N-acetylcysteine in mitigating colitis induced by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in rat models

Author(s):

Bvargas Diaz

Abstract:

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are widely used for their analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties but are associated with gastrointestinal side effects, including colitis. N-acetylcysteine (NAC), a known antioxidant and mucolytic agent, has been investigated for its potential protective effects against NSAID-induced colitis. This article explores the therapeutic potential of NAC in mitigating colitis induced by NSAIDs in rat models, highlighting its mechanisms of action, experimental findings, and clinical implications.
