A pilot pharmacovigilance prospective study to analyse the use of COX-2 selective inhibitors -Celecoxib and Rofecoxib- and two traditional NSAIDs-Diclofenac and Nimesulide- has been performed, with the participation of 136 pharmacies of the Lazio Region (48 from Rome). On the basis of pre-tested questionnaire, pharmacists interviewed all patients prescribed the study drugs. Over a period of 30 days, 949 histories were collected, thus documenting in the area of a productive collaboration in the area of pharmacovigilance between a network of private pharmacies and a scientific society like SIFO (Italian Society of Clinical Pharmacists).
