Meloxicam
  • Molecule Structure Image

Description:

 

Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with analgesic and fever reducer effects. It is a derivative of oxicam, closely related to piroxicam, and falls in the enolic acid group of NSAIDs.It was developed by Boehringer-Ingelheim. It inhibits cyclooxygenase (COX), the enzyme responsible for converting arachidonic acid into prostaglandin H2-the first step in the synthesis of prostaglandins, which are mediators of inflammation and leads to a decrease of the synthesis of prostaglandins, therefore, inflammation is reduced.
