Nimesulide - N- (4-nitro-2-phenoxyphenyl) methanesulfonamide - NSAID-class sulfanilides, selective inhibitor of COX-2. Virtually does not block the activity of COX-1.
Has a pronounced anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effect. It is comparable in effectiveness to indomethacin, diclofenac, ibuprofen and piroxicam, but it is much less likely to cause side effects. In addition, it inhibits the formation of superoxide radicals by stimulated polymorphonuclear leukocytes, binds free radicals, inhibits activation of integrin, inhibits the synthesis of platelet activation factor, prevents the stimulation of nerve endings with bradykinin, inhibits the release of TNF-α, releases histamine from mast cells, inhibits protease activity (elastase , collagenase), prevents damage to the cartilage matrix by inhibiting the synthesis of metalloproteases.
The gel is quickly absorbed into the underlying tissues, enters the synovial fluid.
After a single external application in a dose of 200 mg of Cmax, nimesulide in plasma reaches 9.77 ng / ml of blood and is observed after 24 hours.
With prolonged external application, the concentration of nimesulide on the 8th day in blood plasma is (37.25 ± 13.25) ng / ml, which is 100 times less than when ingested at an average daily dose (200 mg / day).
Five hours after the application of the gel, the concentration of the main active metabolite (4-hydroxynimidesulide) in the blood plasma does not exceed 100 μg / l.
