LORNIA Pharmacodynamics
The drug LORNIA® is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with expressed analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect, belongs to the class of oxycams.
The mechanism of action is based on inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis (inhibition of cyclooxygenase enzyme), resulting in suppression of inflammation.
Lornoxicam has no effect on the main indicators of body condition: body temperature, heart rate (HR), blood pressure (BP), electrocardiogram (ECG), spirometry.
Analgesic effect of lornoxicam is not associated with narcotic action.
LORNIA® has no opiate-like effect on central nervous system (CNS) and in contrast to narcotic analgesics does not suppress respiration, does not cause drug dependence. Due to local irritation of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and systemic ulcerogenic effect associated with inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis, GIT complications are common undesirable effects of treatment with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
