Celebrex Approved For Familial Adenomatous Polyposis



WESTPORT, Dec 28 (Reuters Health) - The US Food and Drug

Administration has expanded approval of the selective COX-2

inhibitor Celebrex (celecoxib) to include reduction of the number

of colorectal polyps in persons with familial adenomatous

polyposis.  Celebrex was first approved for management of

rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis in 1998.  Now, a little

more than a week after the Oncology Drugs Advisory Committee

recommended it, the FDA has approved Celebrex for this new

indication.
