Approved and Potential Uses of ACTIVE-Ketoprofen Kit:

Valued for its analgesic, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory activities, Ketoprofen belongs to the propionic derivative class of NSAIDs, which are cyclooxygenase 1 and 2 (COX-1 and COX-2) inhibitors that block prostaglandin formation. It may also reduce inflammation by decreasing proinflammatory cytokine activity and inhibiting neutrophil aggregation or chemotaxis. Alba-Derm is an oil-in-water emulsion that’s paraben-free, non-irritating, and non-greasy.

Consider using it for the following conditions:

  • Osteoarthritis – Topical NSAIDs such as Ketoprofen are recommended for hand and knee osteoarthritis; elderly patients should use topical applications to avoid systemic adverse effects.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis – Acute pain arising from rheumatoid arthritis is relieved by topical Ketoprofen.
  • Muscle pain, sprains, and strains – Targeted topical delivery has been proven to effectively relieve musculoskeletal pain. Topical 2.5 percent Ketoprofen Gel was superior to placebo for alleviating pain due to ankle sprain in the emergency department. [3]
