Mechanism of action
NSAIDs. It belongs to the class of oxycams, is a derivative of enolic acid. It has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effects. The mechanism of action is associated with a decrease in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins as a result of the inhibition of the enzymatic activity of COX. At the same time, Movalis has a more active effect on COX-2, which participates in the synthesis of prostaglandins in the inflammatory focus, which reduces the risk of side effects on the upper gastrointestinal tract and slightly affects COX-1.
At the same time, meloxicam does not affect the synthesis of proteoglycan by chondrocytes of articular cartilage, does not affect the development of spontaneous arthrosis in rats and mice, which indicates its chondroneutrality.
