A new series of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) obtained by linking ibuprofen to selected furoxan moieties and to related furazans were synthesized and tested for their antiinflammatory, antiaggregatory, and ulcerogenic properties. All the derivatives are endowed with antiinflammatory activity comparable to that of ibuprofen, but, unlike this drug, they display reduced acute gastrotoxicity. The masking of the ibuprofen-free carboxylic group seems to be principally at the basis of this reduced topical irritant action. The two furoxan derivatives 8 and 9 also trigger potent antiaggregatory effects, principally as a consequence of their NOdonor ability.
