Objective: To evaluate the effect of diclofenac, indomethacin and ibuprofen conjugates on the bone. Methods: A total of 120 Wistar female rats (aged 50 days, weight 100-150g) were administered intramuscularly with Dexamethasone disodium phosphate (7mg/kg of the body weight, once in a week) to induce the osteoporosis. At the end of the five weeks the rats were treated with Alendronate sodium (30mg/animal/day p.o.), and the prodrugs 1, 2, 3 at the dose of 25, 50 and 100mg/kg p.o. for 30 days Results: The osteoporotic bone demonstrated the signs of improvement through various parameters like serum ALP, bone weight, length, diameter, bone ash, calcium, phosphorus and bone mineral density. Conclusion: The results confirm that these prodrugs have the potential for the improvement of osteoporotic bones.
