DESCRIPTION:

Carprofen is anon-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the propionic acid class thatincludes ibuprofen, naproxen, and ketoprofen. Carprofen is the nonproprietarydesignation for a substituted carbazole, 6-chloro-∝-methyl-9H-carbazole-2-aceticacid. The empirical formula is C15H12ClNO2 and the molecular weight273.72.

 

CLINICALPHARMACOLOGY:

Carprofen is anon-narcotic, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent with characteristicanalgesic and antipyretic activity approximately equipotent to indomethacin inanimal models.1

The mechanism ofaction of Carprofen, like that of other NSAlDs, is believed to be associatedwith the inhibition of cyclooxygenase activity. Two unique cyclooxygenases havebeen described in mammals.2The constitutive cyclooxygenase, COX-1, synthesizesprostaglandins necessary for normal gastrointestinal and renal function. Theinducible cyclooxygenase, COX-2, generates prostaglandins involved ininflammation

 

PRECAUTIONS:

As a class,cyclooxygenase inhibitory NSAIDs may be associated with gastrointestinal, renaland hepatic toxicity. Effects may result from decreased prostaglandinproduction and inhibition of the enzyme cyclooxygenase which is responsible forthe formation of prostaglandins from arachidonic acid.11-14When NSAlDs inhibitprostaglandins that cause inflammation they may also inhibit those prostaglandinswhich maintain normal homeostatic function.
