Azicox-2® is a product that associated a bactericidal antibiotic from the group of the macrolide group - Azithromycin - and a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory with selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibition activity (COX-2) - Meloxicam
Azithromycin is a modern antibiotic that presents, besides a broad action spectrum, pharmacokinetic characteristics that allow high intracellular concentration and prolonged permanence in tissues, providing, therefore, therapeutic results with a shorter period of treatment.

Besides these effects, Meloxicam also inhibits the infiltration of leukocytes on inflamed tissue and prevents bone and cartilage destruction that happens in bone and cartilage degenerative processes.
