We discuss the clinical aspects of pain syndrome and its correction with antipyretic analgesics by the example of inhibitor of cyclooxygenase-2 - drug nimesulide. The characteristic of nimesulide, its therapeutic efficacy, tolerability and safety examination are presented. We discuss the problem of drug hepatotoxicity and analyze the main mechanisms resulting to the development of hepatopathy.
