Pharmacological properties

Acetylsalicylic acid is an antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antiaggregant agent, which is a derivative of salicylic acid.

Anti-inflammatory effect of acetylsalicylic acid is caused by impact upon processes taking place at the site of inflammation: it reduces capillary permeability, decreases the activity of hyaluronidase, restricts energetic support of inflammatory process through inhibition of ATP formation etc. The inhibition of biosynthesis of prostaglandins makes importance in the mechanism of anti-inflammatory impact. Antipyretic effect is also related to impact upon hypothalamic thermoregulation centers.
