Acetylsalicylic acid (aspirine) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the salicylate group and which shares many common characteristics with other NSAIDs. It has analgesic, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory and antirheumatic effects. Acetylsalicylic acid lowers body’s high temperature by dilating peripheral blood vessels. It has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects through inhibition of prostaglandin synthase enzyme complex. By acetylating platelet cyclooxygenase, acetylsalicylic acid inhibits synthesis of thromboxane A2, a prostaglandin derivative and potent vasoconstrictor that stimulates platelet aggregation and their release. Acetylsalicylic acid inhibits platelet aggregation.
