Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used as anti-inflammatory and analgesic agents. This family of drugs suppresses prostaglandin synthesis through inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX) enzymes. Recent studies showed that anti-carcinogenic effects of these drugs are especially mediated by COX-2 enzyme. Etodolac is a COX-2 inhibitor and though not perfectly selective, it exhibits “preferential selectivity” for COX-2. In this study, the anti-proliferative and apoptotic effects of etodolac and its hydrazone or triazole derivatives (SGK 206 and SGK 242, respectively), were investigated on prostate cancer cell line PC-3 and human colorectal carcinoma cell line HT-29. Our data showed that SGK 206 and SGK 242 were more effective in the inhibition of proliferation and induction of apoptosis compared to etodolac in both cell lines.
