Aspirin

An orally administered non-steroidal antiinflammatory agent. Acetylsalicylic acid binds to and acetylates serine residues in cyclooxygenases, resulting in decreased synthesis of prostaglandin, platelet aggregation, and inflammation. This agent exhibits analgesic, antipyretic, and anticoagulant properties. [from NCI]

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 GTR]

Myocardial ischemia

A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION). [from MeSH]

A non-neoplastic or neoplastic disorder that affects the heart and/or the pericardium. Representative examples include endocarditis, pericarditis, atrial myxoma, cardiac myeloid sarcoma, and pericardial malignant mesothelioma. [from NCI]
