Aspirin is one of the oldest drugs for the treatment of inflammation, fever, and pain. It is reported to covalently modify COX-2 enzyme by acetylating a serine amino acid residue. By virtue of aspirin's acetylating potential, we for the first time developed novel acetyl-donating HDAC inhibitors. In this study, we report the design, synthesis, in silico docking study, and biological evaluation of acetyl-donating HDAC inhibitors. The exposure of MDA-MB-231 cells with compound 4c significantly promotes the acetylation of α-tubulin and histone H3, which are substrates of HDAC6 and HDAC1, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Preterm birth (PTB) is one of the leading causes of perinatal morbidity and mortality. Clinical data suggests that low dose aspirin may decrease the rate of overall PTB, but investigators have speculated that this is likely due to a decrease in medically indicated PTB through its effect on the incidence of preeclampsia and other placental disease. We hypothesized that low dose aspirin may also impact the mechanism of spontaneous preterm labor. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to determine whether low dose aspirin reduces the rate of spontaneous PTB in nulliparous women without medical co-morbidities...

BACKGROUND: Antithrombotic treatment regimen following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is not evidence-based. Apixaban, a non-vitamin K direct anticoagulant (NOAC) was shown to be superior to VKA and superior to aspirin to prevent cardioembolic stroke in non-valvular atrial fibrillation. It may have the potential to reduce TAVR-related thrombotic complications including subclinical valve thrombosis along with a better safety than the standard of care. DESIGN: ATLANTIS is a multicenter, randomized, phase IIIb, prospective, open-label, superiority study comparing standard of care (SOC Group) versus an apixaban-based strategy (Anti-Xa Group) after successful TAVR (ClinicalTrials...

BACKGROUND: Epidemiological studies indicate that aspirin consumption reduces the risk of tumors, which is especially relevant for colonic adenoma and carcinoma. Similar observations were made for glial brain tumors and breast cancers, yet the results are inconsistent. Gentisic acid (GA) is a minor catabolite of aspirin; yet humans carrying CYP2C9-variants incapable to catabolize aspirin to GA do not benefit from aspirin in prevention against colonic adenoma. GA blocks binding of Fibroblastic Growth Factor to its receptor and its sulphonate metabolite dobesilic acid blocks growth of C6 glioblastoma in vivo...

Aspirin may exhibit antitumor activities, as it is able to inhibit cell proliferation. However, the ability of aspirin to inhibit cellular proliferation in Hep-2 cells and its underlying molecular mechanisms have been poorly determined. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether aspirin may induce cell apoptosis in the neoplastic cell line Hep-2. The effects of aspirin on the migratory and invasive abilities of Hep-2 cells were also investigated using Transwell assays. In the present study, it was demonstrated that aspirin induced apoptosis and inhibited proliferation, migration and invasion in Hep-2 cells...

Pial synangiosis is a method of indirect surgical revascularization developed at our institution for the treatment of moyamoya disease in pediatric patients. Similar surgical principles are employed in adult cases, often performed because of lack of an adequate donor vessel. Standardized protocols, including preadmission for preoperative intravenous hydration and aspirin administration, as well as intraoperative electroencephalography, are routinely employed to minimize operative risk. Perioperative heparinization is not required...

Epidemiological studies show that there is limited evidence that tobacco smoking causes breast cancer in humans. In rodents, many tobacco smoke chemicals cause mammary gland tumors. This study evaluated the mammary gland differentiation in mice exposed to environmental cigarette smoke (ECS), using 3R4F Kentucky reference cigarettes, starting after birth and continuing daily for 10 weeks (total particulate exposure 95 mg/m3; CO 610 ppm). We also analyzed the effects of oral administration of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), aspirin (1600mg/kg) or naproxen (320mg/kg), on mammary gland differentiation, either in unexposed or ECS-exposed mice...

Recently, the roles of gene polymorphisms in poor responsiveness to aspirin were extensively investigated, with conflicting results. Therefore, we performed this meta-analysis to better assess the relationship between candidate genetic variants and poor responsiveness to aspirin. Eligible articles were searched in PubMed, Medline, Embase and CNKI. Odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used to detect possible associations of gene polymorphisms with poor responsiveness to aspirin. Among 53 eligible articles, a total of 22 candidate gene polymorphisms were analyzed...

The present study investigates the effects of heat stress on the kidney in broilers, based on previous findings which showed that heat stress caused cardiac damage in broilers. Further, the possible renoprotective role of aspirin and the heat shock proteins HSP60 and HSP47 was also investigated. The enzyme levels of urea and uric acid, which are indicators of renal damage, and lactate dehydrogenase, an indicator of oxidative damage, were measured in chickens that were only exposed to heat stress, chickens that were pretreated with aspirin before heat stress, and chickens that were only treated with aspirin...

This study tested the capability of an assay to predict aspirin response and reduce ischemic events, and healthcare costs, and delays to optimal treatment. Patients who needed aspirin in the course of normal medical care were included. Patients were excluded if they had disorders affecting platelet function, alcohol use within 24 hours of a test, or NSAID use. Dose escalation of chewable aspirin from 81 mg, to 162 mg, to 325 mg daily occurred based on the results of whole blood impedance aggregation testing to the agonists, collagen (1ug/mL, 5 ug/mL) and arachidonate (0...

OBJECTIVE Blunt traumatic extracranial carotid or vertebral artery injury (i.e., traumatic cerebrovascular injury [TCVI]) occurs in 1%-2% of all blunt trauma admissions, carries a 10% risk of thromboembolic ischemic stroke, and accounts for up to 9600 strokes annually in the US. Screening CT angiograms (CTAs) of patients with trauma has become ubiquitous in recent years, and patients with initially asymptomatic TCVI are commonly treated with antiplatelet agents to prevent stroke. Prophylaxis with antiplatelets is thought to be safer than anticoagulation, which carries a significant risk of hemorrhage in patients with trauma...
