The science behind Voltaren


Relieving pain with the anti-inflammatory effects of diclofenac1

Diclofenac reduces inflammation by inhibiting prostaglandin biosynthesis through action on the cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes. Diclofenac exerts its therapeutic effects primarily through inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis by COX. It also reduces the production of leukotrienes by inhibiting phospholipase A2 activity.2-4

Diclofenac not only provides pain relief but also reduces inflammation – a root cause of pain.3,4
