Bou Vorsak, Cambodia Programme Manager at Birdlife International, said the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries gave notice of the measures to stop the import, distribution, supply and use of diclofenac

Presenting a keynote paper on vulture conservation, Prof Dr Rhys Green of Cambridge University said new harmful drugs like Diclofenac
have flooded the market and that is why it is urgent to ban these drugs to save vultures.
The company added that Diclofenac

Morten Schmidt, M.D., Ph.D., from Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark, and colleagues examined the cardiovascular risks of diclofenac
initiation versus initiation of other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, initiation of acetaminophen, and no initiation using data from a series of 252 nationwide cohort studies.
is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that's often used to treat arthritis and other painful joint conditions.
Those beginning diclofenac
had a 50% increased 30-day risk for a composite outcome of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) compared with individuals who didn't initiate an NSAID or acetaminophen (95% confidence interval for incidence rate ratio, 1.4-1.7).
Dr Morten Schmidt, Aarhus University Hospital, said: "It is time acknowledge the potential health risk of diclofenac
and to reduce its use."
, the research team recognized an increased rate of health issues such as irregular heart beat or flutter, stroke, heart failure and heart attack.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a topical diclofenac
gel (Voltaren Gel[R]) for arthritic joints amenable to topical treatment, as well as a diclofenac
