Mechanism of Action
MECHANISM OF ACTION
Long-acting formulation of the local anesthetic bupivacaine in a fixed-dose combination with the anti-inflammatory meloxicam for the prevention of postoperative pain.
Bupivacaine blocks the firing of local pain receptors at the surgical site, while meloxicam works in synergy to reduce local inflammation at the surgical site.
Combining both modalities in a long-acting, locally applied formulation may offer enhanced pain relief for patients relative to currently marketed interventions for postoperative pain, while at the same time reducing the dependence on opioid pain medications.
