Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drug Animation


Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat pain and inflammatory diseases such as gout. Diclofenac targets inflammation to strike pain at its source and is the active ingredient in the medicinal range of Voltarol products that relieve pain.

This medical animation explores the mechanism of action, showing how this NSAID targets key steps in inflammatory cascades. Using impressive scientific visuals, the animation shows how diclofenac reduces inflammation by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis through action on COX-2 enzymes and inhibiting phospholipase A2 activity to reduce the production of inflammatory leukotrienes, resulting in reduced inflammation and pain.

This consumer animation was created for GSK and is found on their Health Partner website under the Voltarol pain relief section, embedded onto the webpage explaining the science behind diclofenac.

Stills from the animation can also be found on this page. In addition, the video is hosted on the GSK Health Partner YouTube Channel.

‘‘Their turnaround time sets them apart from the rest of the field. The fact they can turnaround lots of comments in a couple of days is impressive, whereas that took weeks with other agencies we worked with. They’re well above the benchmark.
Oncology Clinical Liaison, Bristol-Myers Squibb

‘‘It was a combination equally of quality of work but also the comfort and confidence that I knew I would be working with PhDs. They gave me the confidence that they would have the ability to understand. The other companies didn’t have those sorts of people on staff, they were just good animators. That was the area where I felt that I could trust Random42 would deliver.’’
