Nimesulide-Welfarm Pharmacodynamics
Nimesulide is a drug from the group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. It has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effects. Like most NSAIDs, nimesulide shows its pharmacological action by inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandins. In contrast to classical NSAIDs, it acts in the area of inflammation and inhibits mainly cyclooxygenase type 2 (COX 2) and, to a weaker extent, COX 1, inhibiting the formation of pathogenic pro-inflammatory prostaglandins. Nimesulide blocks the release of histamine from mast cells; inhibits the synthesis of elastase, metalloprotease and collagenase, protecting cartilage tissue from damage. By suppressing the release of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a), nimesulide reduces the effect of kinins.

For symptomatic therapy, reduction of intensity of pain and inflammation at the time of use (has no effect on disease progression):
