Aceclofenac Properties


Molecule Structure Image



Aceclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. It is used for the relief of pain and inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. It is a cytokine inhibitor. Aceclofenac works by blocking the action of a substance in the body called cyclo-oxygenase. Cyclo-oxygenase is involved in the production of prostaglandins which cause pain, swelling and inflammation.
