Piroxicam-beta-cyclodextrin
Introduction

Piroxicam-beta-cyclodextrin is a complex of the nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) piroxicam and an inert cyclic macromolecule, beta-cyclodextrin. In clinical trials in patients with pain or rheumatic diseases arising from other conditions, it was as effective an analgesic as standard piroxicam, and showed a faster onset of action on the first day of treatment. In healthy volunteers short term pharmacodynamic studies showed, piroxicam-beta-cyclodextrin was equivalent to or tended to show less gastrointestinal mucosal toxicity than standard piroxicam, as evaluated by endoscopy and faecal blood loss
