OBJECTIVE Low doses of acetyl salicylic acid, acting through 15-epi-lipoxin A4, have been shown to be anti-inflammatory in human studies. The manifold effects of acetyl salicylic acid on human physiology potentially may benefit patients with the systemic inflammatory response syndrome after sepsis or tissue trauma. We sought to determine whether acetyl salicylic acid administration at the time of development of systemic inflammatory response syndrome is associated with reduced mortality… CONTINUE READING
