Pyroxicam Pharmacodynamics
Pyroxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effects. Non-selectively inhibits the activity of cyclooxygenase 1 and cyclooxygenase 2 (COX1 and COX2), inhibits the synthesis of prostaglandins in the inflammation focus and the central nervous system, inhibits the exudative and proliferative phase of inflammation. Inhibits neutrophil aggregation and formation of superoxide anions in neutrophils, migration of polymorphonuclear cells and monocytes to the inflammation focus. Reduces the release of lysosomal enzymes from stimulated leukocytes. Reduces pyrogenic effect of prostaglandins on the thermoregulation center. Reduces the severity of pain syndrome of moderate intensity, increasing the threshold of pain sensitivity to biological amines. Analgesic effect appears 30 min after oral administration. After a single dose, the effect lasts for 24 hours. In joint syndrome, it relieves or reduces inflammation and pain at rest when moving, reduces morning stiffness and joint swelling, helps to increase range of motion. In algodysmenorrhea (being an inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis in the endometrium) it relieves pain syndrome.
