Movasin Pharmacodynamics
Meloxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic effects. Anti-inflammatory action is associated with 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), which is involved in the synthesis of prostaglandin that protects the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and is involved in the regulation of blood flow in the kidneys.
