the Pharmacological

Pharmacokinetics of the DUO Ketonal® Capsule properties represent the new dosage form differing from standard in various release of active agent. Capsules contain two types of pellets: standard (white) and coated (yellow). Ketoprofen is quickly released from white pellets (60% of total) and slowly from yellow pellets (40% of total) that allows to combine the fast and prolonged action. The effect begins to be shown in 20 minutes after reception.
The DUO Ketonal® capsules of 150 mg are well soaked up and the bioavailability of ketoprofen at oral administration is 90%. Meal does not affect the general bioavailability, but reduces absorption speed.
Ketoprofen for 99% is connected with proteins of blood plasma, mainly with albumin fraction. The volume of distribution is 0.1-0.2 l/kg. Ketoprofen gets into synovial fluid and reaches the concentration equal of 50% plasma there (1.5 mkg/ml).
After oral administration of ketoprofen of 150 mg of capsules with the modified release the maximum plasma concentration is reached within 1.76 hours.
Elimination half-life of ketoprofen makes 2 hours (of white pellets). However thanks to the modified release of active agent from the yellow pellets covered with a special kishechnorastvorimy cover duration of effect of Ketonal® DUO reaches 18-20 hours that allows to take the drug once in day.
Ketoprofen is exposed to metabolism in a liver. About 60-75% of ketoprofen
are allocated with urine, mainly in the form of a conjugate with glucuronic acid. Less than 10% are removed in not changed view with a stake.
A pharmacodynamics
Ketoprofen – the nonsteroid antirheumatic means possessing anesthetic and anti-inflammatory action.
The mechanism of action Ketonala is connected with inhibition of biosynthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes due to suppression of activity of enzyme of cyclooxygenase (TsOG-1 and TsOG-2) which catalyzes synthesis of prostaglandins from arachidonic acid. Ketoprofen stabilizes membranes of lysosomes and has antibradikininovy activity.

Medicinal interactions
the Concomitant use of the antiacid or other medicines reducing acidity of gastric juice does not influence the speed and volume of absorption of drug.
Кетонал®ДУО reduces effect of diuretics and antihypertensives, and (Phenytoinum) increases effect of oral hypoglycemic drugs and some antiepileptic drugs.
Potassium drugs, kaliysberegayushchy diuretics, APF inhibitors, heparins (low molecular weight or undivided on fraction), cyclosporine, takrolimus and Trimethoprimum at simultaneous use with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can promote emergence of a hyperpotassemia.
Due to the increased risk of bleedings the patients accepting Ketonal®DUO with anticoagulants or corticosteroids need continuous monitoring.
Кетонал® DUO reduces removal and by that increases toxicity of cardiac glycosides, lithium, cyclosporine and a methotrexate.
Кетонал® DUO can reduce efficiency of mifepristone.
Reception of NPVS needs to be begun not earlier than in 8-12 days after mifepristone cancellation.
Кетонал® DUO should not be appointed together with other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and salicylates.

The special attention is also required by use of drug for patients with disturbance of a hemostasis, hemophilia, an angiohemophilia, heavy thrombocytopenia, a renal or liver failure and also at the patients accepting anticoagulants (coumarin and derivatives of heparin, generally low-molecular heparins).
With care people of advanced age should appoint drug.
Кетонал®ДУО the patients having the hypertension and heart diseases which are followed by a liquid delay in an organism should appoint with care. Monitoring of arterial blood pressure, especially at patients with cardiovascular diseases is recommended.
