This paper describes the background and current status of an OMERACT facilitated effort to improve the consistency of adverse event reporting in rheumatology clinical trials, The overall goal is the development of an adverse event assessment tool that would provide a basis for use of common terminology and improve the consistency of reporting severity of side effects within rheumatology clinical trials and during postmarketing surveillance. The resulting Rheumatology Common Toxicity Criteria Index encompassed the following organ systems: allergic/immunologic, cardiac, ENT, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, neuropsychiatric, ophthalmologic, pulmonary and skin/integument. Before this tool is widely accepted, its validity, consistency, and feasibility need to be assessed in clinical trials.
The International Consensus Meeting on the Mode of Action of COX-2 Inhibition (ICMMAC) brought together 17 international experts in arthritis, gastroenterology and pharmacology on 5 6 December 1997. The meeting was convened to provide a definition of COX-2 specificity and to consider the clinical relevance of COX-2-specific agents. These compounds are a new class of drugs that specifically inhibit the enzyme COX-2 while having no effect on COX-1 across the whole therapeutic dose range. The objectives of the meeting were to review the currently available data regarding the roles and biology of COX-1 and COX-2, and to foster a consensus definition on COX-2 specificity. At the present time, no guidelines exist for the in vitro and in vivo assessment of COX specificity, and it was felt that consensus discussion might clarify some of ...
