Product properties


Each ml contains 20 mg Meloxicam

Mechanism of Action:

Meloxicam is a NSAID drug with anti inflammatory, analgesic, anti-exudative and antipyretic effects which acts by inhibition of cyclooxygenase, phospholipase A2 & Prostaglandin synthesis. Several studies demonstrated that Meloxicam inhibits Cox2 to a greater extent than cox 1. NSAIDs anti inflammatory efficacy arises from inhibition of cyclooxygenase2 (Cox2) whereas inhibition of Cox1 isoform produces the gastric & renal side effects of NSAIDs. Meloxicam has anti-endotoxic properties because it inhibits production of thromboxan B2 induced by E.coli endotoxin in calves & lactating cows.
