You don’t hear much about cyclo-oxygenase enzymes but you certainly can feel their impact if they are over-active. Cyclo-oxygenase 1 and 2, more commonly known as COX-1 and COX-2, covert fatty acids into messenger molecules called prostaglandins. While these messenger molecules serve useful functions in your body, they also tend to be found at very high levels at inflammation sites. Inhibiting COX-1 and COX-2 from creating prostaglandins has been shown to reduce inflammation and the pain associated with it.
When the original anti-inflammation drugs; aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen were found to have undesirable side-effects, new anti-inflammatory drugs were designed to block the COX-2 enzyme. Unfortunately, these COX-2 inhibiting drugs (Vioxx, Celebrex, Bextra and others) were soon discovered to have serious side-effects ranging from increased risk of kidney failure to serious cardiovascular problems.
