BACKGROUND Previous pharmacokinetic studies on racemic ketorolac using nonstereoselective analytical methods have indicated that the plasma clearance of ketorolac is higher and the volume of distribution greater in children than in adults. The aim of this study was to study the stereoselective pharmacokinetics of racemic ketorolac in children, adolescents and adults. METHODS 18 children (6-11 yrs), 18 adolescents (12-17 yrs) and 18 adults (18-44 yrs) participated in the study. At the end of… CONTINUE READING
