Aspirin resistance

Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) is a classic nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agent that irreversibly inhibits type I cyclooxygenase (PTGS1, or COX1; 176805) in platelets, resulting in decreased production of thromboxane A2 (TXA2) and inhibition of platelet aggregation. Because of this feature, it is used therapeutically to prevent cardiothrombotic events. Individuals show a variable response to the drug, referred to as aspirin ineffectiveness or resistance, in which not all individuals or populations appear to receive the full prophylactic or therapeutic benefits (summary by Zhou et al., 2011). Halushka and Halushka (2002) discussed a possible basis for resistance to the cardioprotective effect of aspirin. [from OMIM]
