Core Tip

Core Tip: In summary, celecoxib (6 mg/kg bid) was found to be the most effective non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug for treating juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Rofecoxib, piroxicam, and meloxicam may be safer options, but further research is needed to confirm these findings in larger trials with higher quality studies.
