Newer mechanisms of action of Acetyl Salicylic acid have been discovered in proresolving pathway of various disorders. Omega 3 fatty acids are also involved in the synthesis of resolvins via an aspirin triggered pathway. The present review aims to discuss the role of recently discovered aspirin triggered lipoxins, resolvins, protectins, maresins in understanding the pathophysiology of endothelial dysfunction in various cardiovascular disorders, especially hypertension. The concept of aspirin triggered lipoxins (15-epi-LXA4 and 15-epi-LX4) counteracting the action of LTB 4PGE 2, and TXA2 is discussed. Aspirin triggered lipoxins also block the expression of IL-8 gene.
Aspirin is the only known NSAID to induce NO in a dose dependent manner. In this narrative review, we describe role of acetyl salicylic acid in the pro-resolution pathways that might prevent or reduce complications in patients with high blood pressure.
