Active Comparator: Salsalate first, then Placebo
In this crossover study, this group was randomly allocated therapy with salsalate first, a 4 week washout, then 4 weeks of placebo therapy in a double-blinded fashion.
1.5 grams orally 3 times daily
Other Name: Disalcid
Placebo Comparator: Placebo first, then Salsalate
In this crossover study, this group was randomly allocated therapy with placebo first, a 4 week washout, then 4 weeks of salsalate therapy in a double-blinded fashion.
- Flow-mediated, Endothelium-dependent Vasodilation [ Time Frame: Upon completion of 4 weeks of salsalate and placebo treatment ]Flow-mediated, endothelium-dependent vasodilation (percentage increase in brachial artery diameter after a 5 minute ischemic stimulus) measured at the end of placebo treatment and end of salsalate treatment were compared.
