As systemically used therapeutics for treating acute or chronic pains or inflammations, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) also associate with the adverse gastrointestinal and renal effects and cardiovascular risks. Thus, it is beneficial to develop topical gels that selectively inhibit cyclooxygenase-2
