HIDE SMILES / InChI
Niflumic acid belongs to the group of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, and joint and muscular pain. Its mechanism of action is believed to be based on selective inhibition of cycloxygenases-2 that results in antipyretic, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory effects. In addition to these effects on prostaglandin synthesis, it has been shown to act as a positive allosteric modulator on α1β2γ2 and as a negative modulator on α6β2 and α6β2γ2 (and α1β2) GABAA receptors. In addition, was reported, that niflumic acid blocked T-type calcium channels. It is available for clinical use in several European countries.

Sample Use Guides

Niflumic acid (100 uM) inhibits not only IL-13-induced goblet cell hyperplasia but also airway hyperresponsiveness and eosinophilic infiltration. IL-13 instillation markedly enhanced the expression of MUC5AC mRNA in the lung, and niflumic acid treatment suppressed IL-13–induced overexpression of MUC5AC. Effects of niflumic acid on MUC5AC expression were also analyzed after single IL-13 instillation, and niflumic acid suppressed overexpression of MUC5AC 24 h after IL-13.
