Neurology [2011] Mar 2 [Epub ahead of print] (Gao X, Chen H, Schwarzschild MA, Ascherio A.) Complete abstract

Use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) in general, and possibly Ibuprofen in particular, has been claimed to be related to a lower risk of Parkinson's Disease. It has consequently been claimed that neuro-inflammation may contribute to the cause of Parkinson Disease. The risk of Parkinson's Disease in those people taking Ibuprofen was reduced to 62%. There was also a relationship between Parkinson's Disease and the dosage taken per week. However, other drugs of the same type, including aspirin and other NSAIDS, did not lessen the risk of Parkinson's Disease. Other NSAIDS actually increased the risk of Parkinson's Disease. The authors suggest that Ibuprofen should be further investigated for its potential use in Parkinson's Disease.

However, Ibuprofen has never been shown to reduce Parkinson's Disease. Also, it has also not been proven that the claimed relationship between Ibuprofen and Parkinson's Disease is directly due to Ibuprofen.  Long term use of Ibuprofen is also known to be able to cause serious side effects. For more information go to Ibuprofen. In previous studies, the risk of Parkinson's Disease in people taking Ibuprofen was found to be greater than in the present study at 76% complete abstract, and 85% complete abstract. For more current news go to Parkinson's Disease News.
