Description

Amelotex Pharmacodynamics
NSAID. It has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic effects.
Anti-inflammatory effect is associated with inhibition of COX-2 enzymatic activity, which is involved in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins in the area of inflammation. To a lesser extent, meloxicam acts on COX-1, which is involved in the synthesis of prostaglandin, which protects the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract and is involved in the regulation of blood flow in the kidneys.
Inhibits prostaglandin synthesis in the area of inflammation to a greater extent than in the gastric mucosa or kidneys, which is associated with a relatively selective inhibition of COX-2.
It belongs to the class of oxycams, a derivative of enolic acid.
Meloxicam is a “chondroneutral” drug, has no negative effect on cartilage tissue, does not affect the synthesis of proteoglycan by chondrocytes of articular cartilage.
