The anti-inflammatory effects of diclofenac are due to inhibition of both leukocyte migration and the enzymes COX-1 and COX-2, leading to the peripheral inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis resulting in the analgesic effects of diclofenac. Antipyretic effects may be due to action on the hypothalamus, resulting in peripheral dilation, increased cutaneous blood flow, and subsequent heat dissipation.
