Ketoprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the propionic acid class.
The anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-pyretic effects of ketoprofen are attributed to the inhibition of cyclooxygenase and lipoxygense in the inflammatory process. Ketoprofen is rapidly and extensively absorbed via either intramuscular or intravenous injection.
