Cyclooxygenase (COX) is an enzyme (EC 1.14.99.1) that is responsible for formation of important biological mediators called prostanoids (including prostaglandins, prostacyclin and thromboxane). Pharmacological inhibition of COX can provide relief from the symptoms of inflammation and pain; this is the method of action of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as the well-known aspirin and ibuprofen. The names \"prostaglandin synthase\" and \"prostaglandin synthetase\" are still sometimes used to refer to the COX enzyme.
