Aceclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)
analog of diclofenac. It is used for the relief of pain and inflammation in
rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and ankylosing spondylitis.

It is reported to have a higher anti-inflammatory action or
at least comparable effects than conventional NSAIDs in double-blind studies.

Aceclofenac potently inhibits the cyclo-oxygenase enzyme
(COX) that is involved in the synthesis of prostaglandins, which are
inflammatory mediators that cause pain, swelling, inflammation, and fever.

It was patented in 1983 and approved for medical use in 1992.
