Piroxicam and the enzyme CYP2C9
Piroxicam is processed to a large extent by the enzyme CYP2C9. The activity of this enzyme can vary considerably depending on your genetic predisposition, which means the efficacy of piroxicam can also differ from person to person, as can the risk of side effects.
Information about your genetic predisposition may therefore provide grounds for extra vigilance in relation to a treatment with piroxicam.
