Definition: A 5-benzoyl-2,3-dihydro-1H-pyrrolizine-1-carboxylic acid that has R configuration. Unlike the S-enantiomer, it does not exhibit COX1 and COX2 inhibition, but does exhibit analgesic activity. Racemic ketorolac, known simply as ketorolac, is used (mainly as a tromethamine salt) as a potent analgesic for the short-term management of post-operative pain, and in eye drops to relieve the ocular itching associated with seasonal allergic conjunctivitis.
