Traumeel - Clinical Pharmacology
The exact mechanism of action of Traumeel® Injection Solution is not fully understood. Various cellular and biochemical pathways appear to be modulated by the product ingredients. The mechanism or action of Traumeel® Injection Solution does not appear to be the result of cyclooxygenase or lipoxygenase enzyme inhibition, as is the case with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). Traumeel® Injection Solution does not inhibit the arachidonic acid pathway of prostaglandin synthesis. Instead, the mechanism of action of Traumeel® Injection Solution appears to be the result of modulation of the release of oxygen radicals from activated neutrophils, and inhibition of the release of inflammatory mediators (possibly interleukin-1 from activated macrophages) and neuropepetides.
n-vitro studies show that the ingredients of Traumeel® Injection Solution are non-cytotoxic to granulocytes, lymphocytes, platelets, and endothelia, which indicates that the defensive functions of these cells are preserved during treatment with Traumeel® Injection Solution.
The anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-edematous, and anti exudative effects of Traumeel® Injection Solution have been demonstrated in clinical trials as well as in-vivo experimental models including the carrageenin-induced edema test and the adjuvant arthritis test.
