What are Cox-2 inhibitors
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors block cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) an enzyme that promotes inflammation.
COX-2 enzyme converts arachidonic acid to prostaglandin, causing pain and inflammation. They are mainly present in places of inflammation and are responsible for formation of prostanoids (prostacyclins, prostaglandins and thromboxanes) as part of the inflammatory response.
COX-2 inhibitors are used to relieve pain due to inflammation.
