General description

Ketoprofen belongs to the class of 2-arylpropionic acid.


Ketoprofen has been used:
  • as sample to analyse the effects of long storage period by chromatographic and microscopic techniques
  • as a nonselective COX inhibitor to inject subcutaneously in rats to study its effect on stress/methamphetamine hydrochloride-induced changes in occludin, claudin-5 and COX-2 protein immunoreactivity, truncation of β-dystroglycan, brain water content and fluorescein isothiocyanate-dextran extravasation
  • in phosphate buffer to study its ability to inhibit heat-induced denaturation of albumin

Biochem/physiol Actions

It serves as an efficient drug to treat ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. It also has antipyretic and analgesic effects. Ketoprofen prevents the action of prostaglandin synthetase.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory compound that is selective for COX-1.
