Ketoprofen Pharmacodynamics
Ketoprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Ketoprofen has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effects. Ketoprofen blocks the action of the enzyme cyclooxygenase-1 and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX1 and COX2) and, partially, lipooxygenase, which leads to suppression of prostaglandin synthesis (including in the central nervous system, most likely in the hypothalamus).
Stabilizes in vitro and in vivo liposomal membranes, at high in vitro concentrations ketoprofen inhibits the synthesis of bradykinin and leukotrienes.
Ketoprofen has no negative effect on articular cartilage.
