Mode of action
The mode of action of Aceclofenac is largely based on the inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis. Aceclofenac is a potent inhibitor of the enzyme cyclo-oxygenase COX-1 and COX-2), which is involved in the production of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are the chemical substances released by the body and promote inflammation, pain (mild to moderate) and fever.
Paracetamol has analgesic (pain killer) and antipyretic (reduce fever) properties. It produces analgesia by blocking chemical messengers in the brain that causes pain and shows antipyretic activity by acting on the hypothalamus (a gland present in the brain and is responsible for regulating the body temperature).
Thiocolchicoside is a glyco sulphurated analogue of colchicine. In preclinical studies, the drug was reported to have a selective affinity for gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glycinergic receptors; these properties appear to mediate skeletal muscle relaxant activity. There is evidence that muscle relaxant actions may result from direct activation of the GABA receptor at the spinal level.
