Artist interpretation of the mechanism of action of an NSAID molecule with a COX-2 receptor. Injured cells release Arachidonic acid (AA) molecules (in blue) that bind with the COX-2 receptors which in turn releases prostaglandins. NSAIDs will bind with COX1 and 2 receptors, thereby reducing the level of prostaglandins in circulation.
