Aponil has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effects, whose mechanism is due to selective inhibition of COX-2, which leads to a decrease in prostaglandin synthesis in the focus of inflammation, as well as in the hypothalamus.
The effect on the synthesis of prostaglandins in the gastric mucosa and kidneys is much less pronounced, which determines the good tolerability of nimesulide.
Aponil also inhibits lipid peroxidation and formation of free oxygen radicals, decreases formation of platelet-activating factor, tumor necrosis factor alpha, release of histamine, proteinases and some other inflammatory mediators.
