The mode of action of aspirin and similar compounds

The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology
J R Vane


Aspirin-like drugs inhibit the biosynthesis of prostaglandins in all tissues and species so far studied. The concentrations necessary for this action are achieved after therapeutic dosage. The evidence is reviewed which establishes this biochemical action as the basic mode of therapeutic action of aspirin-like drugs as anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antipyretic compounds. It may also account for the shared side effects, including the hypersensitivity to aspirin-like drugs shown by some allergic patients.

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory genetically determined disease of the skin marked by increased ability to form reagin (IgE), with increased susceptibility to allergic rhinitis and asthma, and hereditary disposition to a lowered threshold for pruritus. Discover the latest research on atopic dermatitis here.

Anti-inflammatory Treatments

A drug or substance that reduces inflammation (redness, swelling, and pain) in the body. Anti-inflammatory agents block certain substances in the body that cause inflammation and swelling. Discover the latest research on anti-inflammatory treatments here

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.
