Acecardol Pharmacodynamics
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). The mechanism of action of acetylsalicylic acid is based on irreversible inhibition of COX, resulting in blockade of thromboxane A2 synthesis and suppression of platelet aggregation. It is believed that acetylsalicylic acid has other mechanisms of inhibiting platelet aggregation, which expands the field of its application in various vascular diseases. Acetylsalicylic acid also has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antipyretic effects.
