Kelain ™ is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with analgesic and antipyretic properties.
Ketoprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that belongs to arylpropionic acid group. The inflammatory agent damages the cell and activates phospholipidases, supplying arachidonic acid. It is a basis for enzyme systems of cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase, resulting in formation of substances, provoking inflammation: prostaglandins, thromboxanes and leukotrienes. Ketoprofen is a dual inhibitor of inflammation, as it blocks the action of cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase and thus prevents formation of prostaglandins and leukotrienes. Ketoprofen has an analgesic effect. The mechanism of this action consists in inhibition of bradykinin, exciting painful nerve endings and, thus, provoking pain. Apart from antibradykinin activity, the drug affects the central nervous system, suppressing the pain perception. Moreover, in horses, ketoprofen neutralizes the effects of endotoxins and counteracts intestinal cramps caused by bradykinin.
Ketoprofen is rapidly absorbed from the injection site. In cows, the maximum plasma concentration of ketoprofen (8.025 ± 1.9 mcg/ml) after intramuscular administration is reached in less than an hour, and its bioavailability is almost complete. More than 98% of ketoprofen binds to plasma proteins and accumulates in inflamed tissues. Ketoprofen has a high affinity for synovial tissues. It is rapidly distributed throughout the body and excreted. The duration of action is longer than expected, with a half-life of less than one hour (intravenous administration to horses) to more than five hours (after intramuscular administration to cattle).. Significant concentrations of ketoprofen were found in the synovial fluid, and its level here is higher than in plasma, and the half-life is 2-3 times longer than in plasma. Ketoprofen is metabolized in the liver to biologically inactive metabolites, and 90% is excreted in urine as glucuronide compounds.
Cattle: it is used as an anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic drug in acute and chronic forms of inflammatory processes of the musculoskeletal system, respiratory system, as well as breast edema and acute mastitis in combination with antimicrobial drugs (as adjunctive therapy).
Horses: for treatment of inflammatory and painful conditions in diseases of the musculoskeletal system, in particular in lameness of traumatic origin, arthritis, osteoarthritis, joint injuries (sprains, synovitis), fractures, tendinitis, hoof lesions (pododermatitis, lameness), post-surgical inflammation , as well as for symptomatic colic treatment.
Swine: it is used as an anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic drug in MMA syndrome (metritis-mastitis-agalactia), for treatment of inflammatory and painful conditions in diseases of the musculoskeletal system and respiratory organs in combination with antibacterial therapy.
Cattle: intravenously or intramuscularly 3 ml of the drug per 100 kg of body weight (3 mg of ketoprofen per 1 kg of body weight) once a day for 1-3 days.
Horses: intravenously for bones and joints, as well as the musculoskeletal system - 1 ml of the drug per 45 kg of body weight (2.2 mg of ketoprofen per 1 kg of body weight) once for 3-5 days. In the treatment of colics, the dose is 1 ml of the drug per 45 kg of body weight (2.2 mg of ketoprofen per 1 kg of body weight) once.. Additional injections are only possible after the veterinarian has re-examined the animal.
Swine: intramuscularly 3 ml of the drug per 100 kg of body weight (3 mg of ketoprofen per 1 kg of body weight) once a day for 1-3 days.
