Zaltoprofen (JAN; trade name Soleton) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used as an analgesic, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory agent.[1] It is a selective COX-2 inhibitor and also inhibits bradykinin-induced pain responses without blocking bradykinin receptors.[2]

It was approved for use in Japan in 1993.[3]
