    Two studies on 41 patients with osteoarthrosis of the hip or knee have shown fenoprofen—a compound with analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties—to be an effective addition to the drug treatment of these conditions. It was found to be superior to paracetamol but no statistically significant difference was shown in a comparison with phenylbutazone.
