Anti-inflammatory drugs are a type of medication used to treat inflammation. The mechanism of action of anti-inflammatory drugs involves inhibiting the activity of enzymes that contribute to the inflammatory process (Gonzáles-Gallego, 2007). There are two common types of anti-inflammatory drugs: steroid anti-inflammatories and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (Widiyantoro, 2012). Literature review is a method used to address issues by exploring existing written sources. Through literature review, we can search for references from various reliable sources such as books, journals, magazines, theses, dissertations, and other relevant sources like the internet and newspapers.
