Ibuprofen: How Well Do You Know Your Favorite Drug?

Ibuprofen was originally developed as an anti-rheumatic drug in 1961 and was first introduced by prescription in 1969 in Great Britain as Bufren. It became available by prescription in the United States in 1974, over-the-counter in Britain in 1983, and over-the-counter in the United States in 1984. As an NSAID, ibuprofen is a non-selective inhibitor of cyclo-oxygenase-1 (COX-1) and cyclo-oxygenase-2 (COX-2). While the exact mechanism remains unknown, ibuprofen is known to be a potent inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis, which controls pain, inflammation and fever. There are two stereo-forms of the drug, however the S-(+)-enantiomer accounts for the majority of the pharmacological activity, and has been found, in in vitro studies, to be 160 times more potent than its racemate, R-(-)-ibuprofen, in inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis, and two times more potent in inhibiting platelet aggregation and thromboxane generation. Its anti-inflammatory effect has been attributed almost entirely to the S-(+)-enantiomer. Ibuprofen is rapidly absorbed, reaching peak serum levels one to two hours after administration, and has a half-life of 1.8 to two hours. Its primary distribution is in plasma albumin, with a volume of distribution of 0.12L/kg in adults, and significant levels are attained in synovial fluid, which is the proposed NSAID site […]
