Pharmacological properties and pharmacokinetic particulars:
Tolfenamic acid (N-(2-methyl-3-chlorophenyl) anthranilic acid) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) belonging to the fenamate group. Tolfenamic acid exerts anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic activities. The anti-inflammatory activity of tolfenamic acid is mainly due to an inhibition of cyclo-oxygenase and thus to a reduction of the synthesis of prostaglandins and thromboxanes, which are important inflammatory mediators.
