ABSTRACT
A wide controversy exists regarding the effect of NSAIDs on the oxidative status. Each member of these NSAIDs has
been shown to act both as antioxidant or pro-oxidant in different test systems, using different concentrations and
various oxidative stress-inducing agents. This review tackles this problem and tries to look for factors that might be
responsible for this variation in results.
