diflunisal

 [di-floo´nĭ-sal]
a salicylic acid derivative that, like aspirin, has analgesic and antiinflammatory properties, although no antipyretic effects, but has fewer side effects than aspirin, does not affect bleeding time or function, and has a long half-life that permits twice daily dosage. It is used in the treatment of rheumatic and nonrheumatic inflammatory disorders, gout and calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease, dysmenorrhea, and vascular headaches.

One study that directly compared diflunisal with naproxen for lateral epicondylitis found no difference between the therapies in patients' subjective perception of pain on a 5-point scale (RR=0.24; 95% CI, 0.03-1.89).
The plates were washed six times with the wash buffer, and then 100 [micro]L of diflunisal phosphate solution [0.1 mol/L TrisHCl buffer (pH 9.1) containing 1 mmol/L diflunisal phosphate, 0.1 mol/L NaCI, and 1 mmol/L Mg[Cl.sub,2]] was added to each well and incubated for 10 min with shaking at room temperature.
