Biochem/physiol Actions

Aspirin is an analgesic and antipyretic agent used in the treatment of fever and pain as in arthritis. It is also associated with cardiovascular diseases.
Blocks the production of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase (prostaglandin H synthase), with greater selectivity toward the COX-1 isoform. The antithrombotic effect is due to the inhibition of COX-1 in platelets that blocks thromboxane production and platelet aggregation. Chemopreventive against colorectal and other solid tumors.
