Pharmacological action


Acetylsalicylic acid is nonsteroid antiinflammatory drug with antipyretic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antiaggregatory action. Inhibits cyclooxygenase and irreversibly inhibits cyclooxygenase way of arachidonic acid metabolism. Influences on subcortical centers of thermoregulation and pain sensitivity. Reduces hyperemia, exudation, capillary permeability, activity of hyaluronidase, limits energy provision of inflammatory process by ATP production inhibition. Decrease of ТхВ2 contentsin thrombocytes that leads to irreversible suppression of aggregation. Slightly dilates vessels. Considerable inhibition of platelets sticking is reached at doses up to 30 mg.


After parenteral introduction Acetylsalicylic acid is very quickly hydrolyzed by esterases (Т1/2is no more than 15-20 min). Anion of Acetylsalicylic acidcirculates in an organism. Salicylates easily enter into tissues and liquids of an organism, diffusion is accelerated at hyperemia and edema, becomes slower in proliferative phase of an inflammation. Salicylates get through a placenta, in small amounts are excreted with breast milk. They biotransformed in a liver with formation of 4 metabolites; excreted by kidneys (the excretion is considerably increased at alkalization of urine).


Inflammatory processes in eye of various origin and localization: endogenous and exogenous uveites, including traumatic, postoperative, contusional, burn uveites; keratites, sclerites, keratouveitis, conjunctivitises. The anti-inflammatory effect is most expressed at preparation use in the acute period of inflammatory process in eye at the perforated and combined traumas of organ of vision. The preparation stops consensual irritation of paired intact eye.
