Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among the most commonly used medications worldwide. They are an important non-addictive option for pain relief, and optimizing NSAID therapy is one strategy to address the current opioid crisis. However, NSAIDs also have the potential to cause adverse cardiovascular events. This talk will discuss ongoing work investigating factors that contribute to inter-individual variability in response to NSAIDs.
