Effects of meclofenamic acid in the treatment of lesions deriving from minor traumatology.

The clinical efficacy and tolerability of topical 5% meclofenamic acid gel versus placebo and oral sodium meclofenamate versus sodium naproxen were evaluated in patients affected with minor traumatologies. Ninety patients were studied: 60 were treated with either meclofenamic acid gel or placebo for 10 days, and 30 were administered with either sodium meclofenamate capsules or sodium naproxen capsules for 7 days. The 5% meclofenamic acid gel and its sodium salt in capsules proved significantly more rapid and efficient than did the reference compounds in reducing pain symptomatology. In the patients treated with 5% meclofenamic acid gel, a greater effect was seen as regards rapidity of spontaneous movement and nocturnal pain reduction. In other variables examined, that is, surface and deep hyperalgesia, and swelling and functional restriction, there was also a significantly higher efficacy than with placebo. Confirmation of the therapeutic efficacy of meclofenamic acid (sodium salt) was obtained with the capsule formulation, that was seen to exert a significant analgesic and antiphlogistic action; the onset of this action was particularly rapid. Both formulations of meclofenamic acid (gel and capsules) were found to be well tolerated. Thus, in the examined formulations, meclofenamic acid proved to be a useful tool in the treatment of lesions in the minor traumatology category.[1]
