Phenylbutazone was first synthesized in 1948 and introduced into human medicine in 1949. Kuzell (1), (2), (3), Payne (4), Fleming (5) and Denko (6) demonstrated the clinical effectiveness of phenylbutazone in gout, gouty arthritis, acute arthritis, acute rheumatism and various other rheumatoid disorders in humans. Fabre (7), Domenjoz (8), Wilhelmi (9) and Yourish (10) have established the anti-rheumatic and anti-inflammatory activity of phenylbutazone. It is entirely unrelated to the steroid hormones.
Toxicity of phenylbutazone has been investigated in rats and mice (11) and dogs (12).
Phenylbutazone has been used by Camberos (13) in thoroughbred horses. Favorable results were reported in cases of traumatism, muscle rupture, strains and inflammations of the third phalanx. Results were not as favorable in the period treatment of osteoarthritis of the stifle and hip, arthrosis of the trapezious muscles and general arthritis. Sutter (14) reported a favorable response in chronic equine arthritis of long duration, fair results in severely bruised mare and poor results in two cases where the condition was limited to the third phalanx.
