Meloxicam structure


Iupac Name:4-hydroxy-2-methyl-N-(5-methyl-1,3-thiazol-2-yl)-1,1-dioxo-1λ6,2-benzothiazine-3-carboxamide
CAS No.: 71125-38-7
Molecular Weight:351.40072
Modify Date.: 2023-02-09 14:23
Introduction: Known as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), Meloxicam is commonly used to treat pain or inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis in adults. It is also used to treat juvenile rheumatoid arthritis in children who are at least 2 years old. It is effective to reduce pain, inflammation, swelling, and stiffness of the joints. Developed by Boehringer-Ingelheim, Meloxicam is a derivative of oxicam that can relieve the symptoms of arthritis, primary dysmenorrhea, fever with analgesic and antipyretic properties. Meloxicam was approved for use in April 2000.Anti-inflammatory effects of meloxicam function by inhibiting the prostaglandin synthetase (cyclooxygenase 1 and 2) which results in a decrease of the synthesis of prostaglandins. As prostaglandins are chemicals that contribute to inflammation especially within joints, which leads to the common symptoms of pain, tenderness, and swelling associated with arthritis, inhibition of their synthesis can be associated with the analgesic and antipyretic effects of meloxicam. As a result, inflammation and its accompanying symptoms are reduced. Meloxicam starts to relieve pain about 30 to 60 minutes after administration. View more+

3. Use and Manufacturing
3.1 Definition
ChEBI: A benzothiazine that is piroxicam in which the pyridin-2-yl group is replaced by a 5-methyl-1,3-thiazol-2-yl group. A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug and selective inhibitor of COX-2, it is used particularly for the management of rheumatoid arthritis.
3.2 General Description
Meloxicam (Mobic) is a selective COX-2 inhibitor amongoxicams indicated for use in RA and OA. It also has a relativelylong half-life of 15 to 20 hours and has a much lowerrate of serious GI side effects and a lower than average riskof nephropathy when compared with other conventionalNSAIDs.196 The recommended dose is 7.5 mg once dailywith a maximum of 15 mg/d. Meloxicam is metabolized inhumans mainly by CYP2C9 (with a minor contribution viaCYP3A4) to 5'-hydroxymethylmeloxicam and 5 carboxymeloxicam.In large-scale comparative trials, meloxicam was foundto be at least as effective as most conventional NSAIDs inthe treatment of rheumatic disease or postoperative pain, buthas demonstrated a more favorable GI tolerability profile.
3.3 Usage
Preferential cyclooxygenase (COX-2) inhibitor. Sudoxicam and Meloxicam are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) from the enol-carboxamide class.
