It has a local anti-inflammatory, anti-exudative and analgesic effect. By inhibiting cyclooxygenase type I and II, inhibits synthesis of prostaglandins. It has anti-bradykinin activity, stabilizes lysosomal membranes and inhibits the release of enzymes that contribute to tissue destruction in chronic inflammation.
