English term or phrase: less lower serum
Well, the evidence actually comes from the large trial called the Target trial, which actually compares xxx versus XXX and Ibuprofen. And, against each of these comparators the efficacy was similar, with considerably less early and overall GI side effect, and with no increase in cardio-vascular or the thrombotic event associated with the heart, like myocardial infarction.
I think the reason for that is that xxx seems to have a **less lower serum half life** in that it goes straight into the joint and stays in the joint for a longer period.
