In rats, neither the cyclooxygenase-1 inhibitor SC-560 nor the cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor rofecoxib damages the gastric mucosa. Coadministration of dexamethasone induced injury in SC-560- but not in rofecoxib-treated rats. High levels of cyclooxygenase-1 protein occurred in the gastric mucosa of control rats, with no change after administration of SC-560. In contrast, the gastric cyclooxygenase-2 protein levels were low in control rats, but increased in a time-dependent manner after administration of SC-560. Dexamethasone prevented the increase in cyclooxygenase-2 protein levels. Our findings show that inhibition of cyclooxygenase-1 upregulates cyclooxygenase-2. When the upregulation is prevented by dexamethasone, gastric damage develops, suggesting that induction of cyclooxygenase-2 represents a compensatory mechanism that counteracts the injurious effect of cyclooxygenase-1 inhibition.
