Description

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