Clinical Pharmacology

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY As the active ingredient in aspirin, acetylsalicylic acid works by inhibiting several different chemical processes within the body, including the natural physiological processes causing pain and inflammation. Aspirin relieves pain by inhibiting production of chemicals called prostaglandins, aspirin works to diminish the body's response to a chain of chemical processes that eventually leads to pain. This mechanism of action works on a cellular level.
