Abstract : Studies have shown that the rat dorsal skin and hind limb burn injury models of 2nd degree burns are appropriate for testing the analgesic and healing rate efficacy of test drugs. These models were used to test Ibuprofen (Ibu), Ibuprofen associated with phosphatidylcholine (Ibu-PC), Indomethacin (Indo), and Indo-PC. The experimental drug Indo-PC showed analgesic and anti-inflammatory efficacy over Indo alone or the Ibu drugs, notably when administered parenterally without notable side-effects. These studies support a rationale for continued development of parenteral Indo-PC for treatment of 2nd degree burn wounds.
