The licence for Celebrex (celecoxib) has been extended to include symptomatic relief in the treatment of ankylosing spondylitis. Celebrex was already licensed for symptomatic relief in the treatment of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

The recommended daily dose of Celebrex for patients with ankylosing spondylitis is 200mg taken once daily or in two divided doses. A maximum dose of 400mg daily may be required in some patients. Therapeutic benefit should be assessed after two weeks of use.
