The NSAID ketoprofen is used widely in the management of inflammatory and musculoskeletal conditions, pain, and fever in children and adults. [] Key Result Analgesic efficacy was similar with intravenous, intramuscular, or rectal routes of administration, but oral administration just before surgery was inferior to intravenous administration in this setting.

Intravenous Paracetamol in Adjunct to Intravenous Ketoprofen for Postoperative Pain in Children Undergoing General Surgery: A Double-Blinded Randomized Study
TLDR
Investigating if intravenous paracetamol in a dose of 60 mg kg−1 24 h−1, given in addition to i.v. ketoprofen improves analgesia, physical recovery, and satisfaction with postoperative well-being in children and adolescents following moderate and major general surgery finds no obvious benefits to opioid requirement or analgesia.
Analgesic efficacy of morphine versus concurrent use of ketorolac and Acetaminophen in mandibular bone surgery
TLDR
Morphine showed better efficiency in pain control than the concurrent use of ketorolac and intravenous acetaminophen after mandibular bone surgery and no significant differences were found between the two groups in most hours.
The pharmacokinetics of oral ketoprofen in patients after gastric resection.
The safety of ketoprofen in different ages
TLDR
A retrospective study on 2012 ADRs reviewing literature on the safety of ketoprofen in the elderly, children, and during pregnancy finds that it is one of the most used NSAIDs and the total number of ADRs should be related to the therapeutic use.
Differential protein modulation by ketoprofen and ibuprofen underlines different cellular response by gastric epithelium
TLDR
The effect of lysine and arginine, another amino acid counterion commonly used for NSAIDs salification, is compared in control and in ethanol challenged human gastric mucosa model to derive further insights into the safety and efficacy profile of ketoprofen.
Intravenous dexketoprofen induces less injection pain than racemic ketoprofen
TLDR
In this study, the injection pain of IV administered racemic ketoprofen and dexketobrofen in elective surgical patients is compared and it has been claimed that dexketoprfen may cause less frequent and less severe injection pain than racemicketofen.
Pharmacogenetic Aspects of Postoperative Anesthesia with Ketoprofen in Cardiac Surgery Patients
TLDR
Patients with the GA genotype for the CYP2D6*4 allelic variant showed a lower intensity of pain syndrome than the GG genotype, and higher dyspepsia was revealed than in the CC genotype.
Parecoxib sodium reduces the need for opioids after tonsillectomy in children: a double-blind placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial
TLDR
A single intravenous injection of parecoxib sodium 1 mg·kg−1 after anesthesia induction is an effective method for the control of postoperative pain and reduces PONV in children undergoing tonsillectomy.
Pharmacokinetic considerations for pediatric patients receiving analgesia in the intensive care unit; targeting postoperative, ECMO and hypothermia patients
TLDR
This work provides a stepwise manner to develop PK-based dosing regimens using population PK approaches in children undergoing HT, ECMO or cardiac surgery and explains why PK/PD may be different in these populations.

Dose-Finding Studies of Ketoprofen in the Management of Fever in Children
TLDR
Ketoprofen was found to have a significant antipyretic efficacy in children and was selected for future evaluation in phase III studies in the symptomatic management of fever in children.
The Analgesic Efficacy of Acetaminophen, Ketoprofen, or Their Combination for Pediatric Surgical Patients Having Soft Tissue or Orthopedic Procedures
TLDR
The combination of acetaminophen 100mg/kg and ketoprofen 4 mg/kg in a day provided better analgesia and lower pain scores after orthopedic, but not soft tissue, surgery in children.
Pharmacokinetics of Ketoprofen Syrup in Small Children
TLDR
Ketoprofen syrup was absorbed rapidly, the plasma level reaching its maximum at 0.5 hours, and the elimination half‐life, 2.0 hours in Group 1 or 1.9 Hours in Group 2, was similar to that reported in adults.
Risks and Benefits of Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs in Children
TLDR
NSAIDs are effective in reducing fever, alleviating pain and reducing inflammation in children, with a good tolerance profile, and acetaminophen should remain the firstline therapy in the treatment of childhood fever.
Ketoprofen versus Paracetamol (Acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen in the Management of Fever
TLDR
Ketoprofen at the 0.5 mg/kg dose should be an effective and safe option for symptomatic management of fever in children, and appeared to be equivalent to the standard antipyretic doses of the reference products ibuprofen 5mg/kg and paracetamol 15 mg/ kg.
Pharmacokinetics of Intravenous and Rectal Ketoprofen in Young Children
TLDR
Absorption of ketoprofen after rectal administration is reasonably rapid and predictable, and a suppository may be used in children in whom the drug cannot be given intravenously or by mouth.
Clinical Pharmacokinetics of Ketoprofen and Its Enantiomers
TLDR
There appears to be circadian variation, particularly in the absorption of ketoprofen, and the relationship between concentration and anti-inflammatory effect has yet to be elucidated for this drug.
The effect of intravenous ketoprofen on postoperative epidural sufentanil analgesia in children.
TLDR
It is concluded that ketoprofen improved postoperative pain in children and reduced epidural sufentanil requirements, and the incidence of opioid-related adverse effects was not changed.
Antipyretic effect of ketoprofen
TLDR
It is suggested that ketoprofen may be used for antipyresis as an alternative to acetaminophen and ibuprofen in patients with complaint of fever that required antipyretic therapy.
Ketoprofen versus paracetamol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen in the management of fever: results of two randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, parallel-group, repeated-dose, multicentre, phase III studies in children.
TLDR
Ketoprofen at the 0.5 mg/kg dose should be an effective and safe option for symptomatic management of fever in children, and appeared to be equivalent to the standard antipyretic doses of the reference products ibuprofen 5mg/kg and paracetamol 15 mg/ kg.
