Mechanism of action of Indomethacin :Indomethacin Is A Prostaglandin Synthase Inhibitor That Acts On Both Prostaglandin Synthase 1 And 2 (COX-1 And -2). Prostaglandin Synthase Catalyzes The Conversion Of Arachidonic Acid To A Number Of Prostaglandins Involved In Fever, Pain, Swelling, Inflammation, And Platelet Aggregation. Indomethacin Antagonizes COX By Binding To The Upper Portion Of The Active Site, Preventing Its Substrate, Arachidonic Acid, From Entering The Active Site. Indomethacin, Unlike Other NSAIDs, Also Inhibits Phospholipase A2, The Enzyme Responsible For Releasing Arachidonic Acid From Phospholipids. Indomethacin Is More Selective For COX-1 Than COX-2, Which Accounts For Its Increased Adverse Gastric Effects Relative To Other NSAIDs. COX-1 Is Required For Maintaining The Protective Gastric Mucosal Layer. The Analgesic, Antipyretic And Anti-inflammatory Effects Of Indomethacin Occur As A Result Of Decreased Prostaglandin Synthesis. Its Antipyretic Effects May Be Due To Action On The Hypothalamus, Resulting In An Increased Peripheral Blood Flow, Vasodilation, And Subsequent Heat Dissipation.
