Mode of action of diclofenac
A damage to body tissues due to injury, infection or inflammation produced so-called prostaglandins by Special enzymes, the Cyclooxigenasen. These prostaglandins strengthen the inflammatory reaction in the tissue and irritate the nerve endings in injured tissue as messengers. Prostaglandins also provide a transmission of pain signals to the brain, where the perception of pain and pain processing is done. Also in the brain, the prostaglandins attract the center of temperature control, which then leads to fever.
Diclofenac belongs to the drug group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and the subgroup of acetic acid compounds. Like all non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, recognises also the effect of diclofenac in the Cyclooxigenasen. By the active substance blocking these enzymes, it prevents the formation of prostaglandins. So, the prostaglandin-mediated pain and inflammatory reactions are suppressed.
