Loprin (aspirin) has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-pyretic activity. It also has an antithrombotic action, mediated through inhibition of platelet activation, which has been shown to be useful in secondary prophylaxis following myocardial infarction and in patients with unstable angina or ischaemic stroke including cerebral transient attacks. In the body it is rapidly converted to the salicylate form which has similar activity and works via the inhibition of the enzyme cyclo-oxygenase inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis. The enteric coat is intended to resist gastric fluid whilst allowing disintegration in the intestinal fluid. Owing to the delay that the coating imposes on the release of the active ingredient, enteric coated tablets are unsuitable for the short-term relief of pain.
