Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s) are one of the most widely prescribed drugs for their analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic properties. This book provides new research on the common uses, risks and effectiveness of NSAIDs. Chapter One evaluates the potential environmental health impacts of NSAIDs in aquatic environments. Chapter Two reviews the incidence rate and toxic damage of diclofenac which is one of the mostly detected drugs in aquatic environments worldwide. Chapter Three discusses advanced oxidation processes for the removal of NSAIDs. Chapter Four outlines recent progress of EPs and their role in inflammation-related cardiovascular diseases.
