Description

Genitron Pharmacodynamics
Meloxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, analgesic effects. It belongs to the class of oxycams, a derivative of enolic acid. Mechanism of action – inhibition of prostaglandin (Pg) synthesis as a result of selective inhibition of cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) enzymatic activity. When prescribed in high doses, prolonged use and individual characteristics of the body COX-2 selectivity is reduced. It suppresses Pg 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, whereas inhibition of the ever-present COX-1 isoenzyme may cause gastrointestinal (GI) and renal side effects.
