Cyclooxygenase (COX) is an essential enzyme in the formation of prostaglandins, prostacyclin and thromboxane which are major biological mediators. The symptoms of swelling and pain are relieved by inhibitting COX. Aspirin and ibuprofen are the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs which show their action through inhibition of COX.Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submittedÂ manuscriptsÂ and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the acceptedÂ standardsÂ of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
