Description

Diclofarm Pharmacological action
NSAID, a derivative of phenylacetic acid. It has a pronounced anti-inflammatory, analgesic and moderate antipyretic effect. The mechanism of action is associated with inhibition of COX activity – the main enzyme of arachidonic acid metabolism, which is a precursor of prostaglandins that play an important role in the pathogenesis of inflammation, pain and fever. Analgesic effect is due to two mechanisms: peripheral (indirectly, through inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis) and central (due to inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis in central and peripheral nervous system).
In vitro in concentrations equivalent to those achieved by treating patients does not inhibit cartilage proteoglycan biosynthesis.
In rheumatic diseases, it reduces joint pain at rest and on movement, as well as morning stiffness and joint swelling, and helps increase range of motion. It reduces post-traumatic and post-operative pain, as well as inflammatory swelling.
In case of post-traumatic and post-operative inflammatory phenomena it quickly relieves pain (occurring both at rest and during movement), reduces inflammatory swelling and edema of the postoperative wound.
Inhibits platelet aggregation. With prolonged use it has a desensitizing effect.
