Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): leukotriene antagonist
A drug designed to prevent leukotriene synthesis or activity by blocking binding at the receptor level.
EC (arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase) inhibitor
A lipoxygenase inhibitor that interferes with the action of arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase (EC
Application(s): leukotriene antagonist
A drug designed to prevent leukotriene synthesis or activity by blocking binding at the receptor level.
non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug
An anti-inflammatory drug that is not a steroid. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions. They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins.
anti-asthmatic drug
A drug used to treat asthma.
