Therapeutic effect of Ketanov: Ketanov is part of a class of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. This medicine exhibits anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-pyretic properties.

Ketanov by blocking the enzyme cyclooxygenase prevents the production of inflammatory mediator prostaglandins. This action reduces inflammations and other allergic symptoms. Ketanov also blocks platelet aggregation which is stimulated by collagen and arachidonic acid. This drug also increases the bleeding time but has no influence on the partial thromboplastin time, prothrombin time, or the amount of platelets present.
