    Naproxen at 10 mg per kg body weight was compared with aspirin at 80 mg per kg body weight in children suffering from juvenile chronic polyarthritis. It was found to be as effective as aspirin, with certainly no more and possibly fewer gastrointestinal side effects. A long-term tolerance study up to 12 months confirmed that naproxed was a satisfactory nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug in the management of various types of juvenile chronic arthritis.
