Objective: Celecoxib (CLX), brand named Celebrex, which belongs to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs family, selectively inhibits the cytokine related cyclooxygenase-2 isoenzyme and thus, possesses less gastrointestinal side effects, have shown to cause stroke, myocard infarction and even death in some cases. In this study we aimed to target inflammation site using CLX uploaded nano-micelles (nano-CLX) made of poly (lactic-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA) to protect other tissues from its side effects.
