They have issued review on:

The reviews covered 25 randomised controlled studies involving celecoxib, 13 involving etoricoxib and 8 involving lumiracoxib. All three reviews found that evidence of efficacy for these drugs was strong but concerns about cardiovascular safety gives this class of drugs a low place in therapy.
