Pain & Inflammation
How it works
The mode of action of lornoxicam is partly based on inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis (inhibition of cyclo-oxygenase enzyme). The inhibition of cyclo-oxygenase does not result in an increase formation of leukotriene. As with other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs the mechanism of the analgesic action of Lornoxicam has not been fully determined.
