Vioxx, COX-2 Selective Inhibitor

Vioxx, also known as rofecoxib, is a prescription drug that acts on one form of the cyclooxygenase (COX) enyme.  It belongs to the group of drugs known a NSAID's or COX-1 and COX-2 inhibitors.  Vioxx is a COX-2 inhibitor and acts to reduce pain and inflammation. Non-selective NSAID's such as aspirin and ibuprofen often times can cause peptic ulcers.  Vioxx, by being selective COX-2 inhibitor minimizes the adverse gastrointestinal effects.

Vioxx was widely prescribed to relieve arthritis pain and inflammation from its introduction in 1999 until 2004.  The drug was voluntarily removed from the market by the manufacturer, Merck, in 2004 after it was suspected to possibly have contributed to tens of thousands of deaths due to cardiac failure.
