The acute effects of non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) were studied on guinea-pig ileum isolated preparation. Two cyclo-oxygenase inhibitors, aspirin and indomethacin, and two NSAID devoid of this effect, salicylic acid and benzydamine, were injected into the bath 1 min before PGE1 or CCK-8. All drugs tested elicited a dose-related inhibition of the neuronally evoked contractile responses to submaximal dose of PGE1 and CCK-8. These drugs depressed also the opioid system(s) activated by PGE1 or CCK-8. These results indicate that the inhibition of neuronally evoked response is a common mechanism of NSAIDs. This mechanism may have an important role on analgesic and anti-inflammatory action of these drugs.
