Aspirin under attack . . . not by Gastro-enterologists this time , but by cardiologists themself !
Aspirin , after all may not be safe , as a primary prevention drug against CAD . It seems , it considerably increases the risk of bleeding . The new meta analysis just published in Archives of internal medicine says so !
Be cautious it concludes ! Since the track record of evidence based medical science ( and its reproducibility ) looks pathetic in recent times , we may expect another stunning study very soon , with an exactly opposite conclusion !
So , we have a “vacancy in the top slot” for primary prevention of CAD . Mind you , makers of Prasugrel and Ticagrelor are already fastening their seat belts !
