Fort-gel Pharmacological properties
Ketoprofen belongs to the NSAID derivatives of propionic acid. It has analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects due to inhibition of the action of cyclooxygenase 1 (COX-1) and cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2), inhibition of bradykinin activity, stabilization of lysosomal membranes and inhibition of macrophage migration. Ketoprofen has analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects at an early stage (vascular phase) and at a late stage (cellular phase) of the inflammatory response. Ketoprofen also inhibits platelet aggregation.
When applied topically, ketoprofen gel is absorbed from the skin and penetrates locally into inflammatory tissues. Absorption to systemic circulation is very low (only 5% of the dose is applied).
The preparation applied to the skin quickly penetrates into the problem area and maintains the therapeutic concentration in it. Absorption into the general bloodstream, on the contrary, is slow. When applied to the skin of a gel containing 50 to 150 mg of ketoprofen, after 5-8 hours in the blood plasma, the concentration of the active substance does not exceed 0.08-0.15 μg / ml, practically does not have a clinically significant effect on the body.
