Ketoprofen Pharmacodynamics
Ketoprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with local anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect due to inhibition of cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) activity that regulate prostaglandin (Pg) synthesis.
In joint syndrome it causes less arthralgia at rest and on movement, less “morning stiffness” and swollen joints. Ketoprofen has no catabolic effect on articular cartilage.
