Acemetacin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug which is rapidly bioconverted to indomethacin, but produces significantly less gastric damage than indomethacin. This study was performed to investigate several possible mechanisms that could account for the gastrointestinal tolerability of acemetacin.
