Pharmacodynamics

This drug is an isomer of ketoprofen. Dexketoprofen a propionic acid derivative with analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic properties 3.

Mechanism of action

It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that reduces prostaglandin synthesis via inhibition of cyclooxygenase pathway (both COX-1 and COX-2) activity 3.

TargetActionsOrganism

Absorption

After oral ingestion, the Dexketoprofen onset of action is within 30 minutes. The plasma half-life of Dexketoprofen is about 4-6 hours. The Cmax is about 30 minutes [L1204]

Volume of distribution

<0.25 L/kg 3

Protein binding

Highly protein bound 3.

Metabolism

Dexketoprofen is highly lipophilic, and is metabolized in the liver by glucuronidation 7. In one study, after oral administration of 25 mg of dexketoprofen to young healthy adults, Tmax was approximately 30 min for a Cmax of 3.7 ± 0.72 mg/l 8. Dexketoprofen trometamol is metabolized by the hepatic cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYP2C8 and CYP2C9) 8.

Dexketoprofen trometamol has a number of metabolites, with hydroxyl derivatives making up the greatest volume 8. In humans, hydroxylation plays a minor role.

Dexketoprofen is primarily conjugated to an acyl-glucuronide 8

Route of elimination

Approximately 70 to 80% of the ingested dose is recovered in the urine during the first 12 hours post-ingestion, mainly as the acyl-conjugated form of the drug 5.

Half-life

1.65 h 3

Clearance

Mainly cleared via glucuronide conjugation and followed by renal excretion, mainly unchanged 3.

Toxicity

Nausea and/or vomiting, stomach pain, diarrhea, digestive problems (dyspepsia) are the most common symptoms of toxicity. More toxicity symptoms include dizziness, sleepiness, disturbed sleep, nervousness, headache, palpitations, flushing, stomach problems, constipation, dry mouth, flatulence, skin rash, tiredness, pain, feeling feverish and shivering, and malaise.

Severe toxicity can lead to thrombocytopenia and anemia with bleeding episodes. Dexketoprofen is associated with a small increased risk of myocardial infarction 6.
