Description

Amelotex Pharmacodynamics
AMELOTEX® is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic effects. Its anti-inflammatory effect is due to inhibition of the enzymatic activity of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), which is involved in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins in the area of inflammation. To a lesser extent, meloxicam acts on cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1), involved in the synthesis of prostaglandin, which protects the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract and is involved in the regulation of blood flow in the kidneys.
It suppresses prostaglandin synthesis in the area of inflammation to a greater extent than in the gastrointestinal mucosa or kidneys, which is due to the relatively selective inhibition of COX-2.

Indications

– rheumatoid arthritis;
– Ankylosing spondylitis (Bechterew’s disease).

– complete or incomplete combination of bronchial asthma, recurrent nasal and paranasal sinus polyposis and intolerance to acetylsalicylic acid and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (including history);
