The latest findings on the role of aspirin in primary prevention of cardiovascular events
Marinko Bilušić, MD, specialist in clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology
Recently there has been extensive writing about how "the myth of aspirin has been destroyed" and that its beneficial effects in the prevention of cardiovascular events in patients with present risk factors that favour the emergence of these events, which include high blood pressure, diabetes and high fat in the blood, are questionable.
Although referring to the results of large and serious clinical research, interpretation of these results in the media creates somehow a doubt that aspirin as a matter of fact is not effective in this indication.
