Physical characteristics, pharmacological properties and clinical efficacy of the ketoprofen patch: a new patch formulation.
The mechanism of action of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), to which ketoprofen belongs, is based on their cyclo-oxigenase (COX) inhibiting action, concerning both subtype COX-1 constitutive isoform and COX-2 inducible isoform. Ketoprofen administration may be carried out by oral and parenteral routes as well as by topical application, which includes transdermic patch use. Following a synthetic description of the results obtained by several investigators on ketoprofen use, the Authors present a new formulation of the ketoprofen patch obtained by the so called DermaLight Technology.
