Regular use of pain relievers can favor Crohn's disease.

(May 4, 2010) The regular intake of pain relievers can possibly favor an intestinal disease like Crohn's disease. Medical scientists from the University of East Anglia have found in studies that regular use of the painkiller acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) increases the risk of Crohn's disease by a factor of five. Heart patients in particular are taking medications containing ASA for thinning their blood.

Around 200,000 subjects from the European countries Germany, Great Britain, Sweden, Denmark and Italy took part in the study. Some of the participants developed Crohn's disease over time. Through further research, it was found that the participating subjects, who suffered from the bowel disease, regularly take painkillers containing acetylsalicylic acid. The results were published at the "Digestive Disease Week conference" in the USA. Now further studies are to clarify whether ASA painkillers may favor intestinal diseases such as Crohn's disease and whether other, as yet unknown aspects play a role. (sb)
