lysosome activity and inflammatory mediators. The drug is a strong inhibitor of
lipoxygenase, blocks the synthesis arachidonic acid. Besides, it inhibits COX-1
and COX-2 activity, what results in the inhibition of synthesis of
prostaglandins. It inhibits thrombocytes agregation. Naproxen sodium is not a
