Mechanism of action of Ibuprofen

Ibuprofen is propionic acid derivatives.
It directly acts on cox 1 and cox2 selective enzyme and stop the pain mechanism.

How pain, inflammation is occur

There are no store of prostaglandin in the body they are directly synthesized from membrane lipids when get some external/appropriate stimuli.
Stimuli activate hydrolases, also stimulate phospholipase A .probably intracellular ca+ increase.
Then the cyclooxygenase pathway starts.
Phospholipase A is responsible for arachidonic acid synthesis.
Arachidonic acid is cyclooxygenase and produces PGG2  and PGH2.
Cyclooxygenases is two types of enzyme COX1 and COX 2.
PGH2 is isomerases and produce PGE2 , PGD2, PGF2. These three are mainly responsible for pain,  fever, and inflammation.
PGH2 is then converted into TXA2 by the process thromboxane synthase.TXA2 is not stable in this state for a long time it is converted into TXB2 suddenly.
it also converted into platelet.
PGH2 is also converted into PGI2 by the process prostacyclin synthase.PGI2 is not stable it is converted into 6 keto-PGF1.
This PGD2,  PGE2, PGF2 have activated the neuron which act on the brain for the sensation of pain, inflammatory, fever.

How ibuprofen act on body

Ibuprofen directly binds with COX1 and COX2 enzyme and stop all the step of synthesis of PGD2,  PGE2, and PGF2.So no inflammation, pain , and fever occurs.
The ibuprofen plasma half-life is 2 hour.
