Benoxaprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. It was marketed by Eli Lilly and Company under the brand name Oraflex in the US and as Opren in Europe. Lilly suspended sales of Oraflex in 1982 after reports from the British government and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of adverse effects and deaths linked to the drug.
