The science behind Iodex Ultragel


Targeting pain with the potent 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-2. It also reduces the production of leukotrienes by inhibiting phospholipase A2 activity.3,5

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