I've first heard about this type of medication connection when the they discovered the Interlueken 1 and 6 connection (it might be two different numbers, I can't remember at this point) at the University of Sheffield, England a few years ago. They discovered higher levels of those 2 ILs in people who had a tendency to get adhesions. The thought was to find a way to suppress the ILs immediately after surgery to stop the formation of adhesions. That is where the celebrex comes in. Apparently they suppress the ILs. After a couple of years of no more information, I emailed the research doctor at Sheffield. He informed me that at this point it would take a massive and dangerous dose of Celebrex to do any good with the adhesions, so it isn't an option at this time. But, it is a step in the right direction. I don't think that it works. I have a friend who was taking celebrex, for another disorder, before and after her hysterectomy. She has adhesions.
