DACK is indicated for the acute and chronic treatment of signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Mode of Action
The anti-inflammatory effects of DACK are believed to be due to inhibition of leukocyte migration and the enzyme cyclooxygenase (COX-1 and COX-2), leading to the peripheral inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis. As prostaglandins sensitize pain receptor, inhibition of their synthesis responsible for the analgesic effects of DACK.
