Description

Amelotex Pharmacodynamics
AMELOTEX® gel contains meloxicam – a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with analgesic, anti-inflammatory effect. Anti-inflammatory effect is associated with inhibition of enzymatic activity of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), 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. Meloxicam is a “chondroneutral” drug, has no adverse effect on cartilage tissue, does not affect the synthesis of proteoglycan by chondrocytes of articular cartilage. When applied topically, the drug reduces
or eliminates pain in the area of application of the gel, including joint pain at rest and during movement. Helps to increase the volume of movement.
