How Firocoxib Works


Firocoxib is a COX-2 inhibitor, being that it blocks the COX-2 enzyme, resulting in a reduction in the production of prostaglandins, substances that are involved in the inflammation process. By reducing the production of prostaglandins, firocoxib helps reduce the symptoms of inflammation, including pain.
