Description

6-Methoxy-2-Naphthylacetic acid (6-MNA), an active metabolite of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug nabumetone has long half-life and has the tendency to penetrate well into synovial fluid. 6-MNA is a competitive inhibitor of Cox (cyclooxygenases).

Sample Use Guides

In Vivo Use Guide
In the indometacin-induced gastric mucosal injury, rats were treated with indometacin and then nabumetone or 6MNA (6-Methoxy-2-Naphthylacetic acid) was orally administered. Nabumetone prevented gastric damage accompanied by the reduction of neutrophil infiltration into gastric mucosa, but such an effect was not observed with 6MNA
