Aspirin and Clinical Disease States: Pain
Abstract:Aspirin is the standard reference analgesic against which all other non-narcotic analgesic agents are judged. It is postulated that inhibition of prostaglandin biosynthesis by aspirin provides an explanation for at least part of its analgesic properties. The relative analgesic efficacy of aspirin in comparison with other oral analgesics in three different clinical pain models (postoperative pain, postpartum uterine pain, and cancer pain) is reviewed and discussed in this article. Also summarized are preliminary data on aspirin in migraine prophylaxis.
