Ketoquin is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
Ketoprofen (propionic acid based compound) provides anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effect and inhibits thrombocytic aggregation. Mechanism of ketoprofen action is based on prostaglandin synthesis inhibition due to effect on cyclooxygenase and lypooxygenase components of arachidonic acid metabolism. It also stabilizes lysosomal membranes. It causes neutrophil activity inhibition in animals with arthritis. Ketoprofen resists endotoxine effect and prevents intestinal spasm in horses.
It rapidly absorbs in injection site with further penetration in blood and most of organs and tissues obtaining peak plasma concentration in 30-40 minutes. Ketoprofen is metabolized in liver and, mainly, is excreted by kidneys within 12 hours.
