The hypothesis that slow administration of low doses of aspirin may selectively inhibit platelet cyclooxygenase and thromboxane A2 formation was evaluated using controlled release aspirin formulations. In the first study, doses of either 50, 100, 325 and 1,300 mg of these formulations and 300 mg soluble aspirin were ingested daily by healthy volunteers for one week. In the second study, doses of 5, 10, 25 and 50 mg controlled release aspirin, 50 mg soluble aspirin and 100 mg aspirin and glycine formulation were ingested daily for ten days. Platelet function and urinary prostaglandin production were assessed immediately before and on the seventh day of dosing in both studies and in the second study, repeated on the tenth day of dosing. Platelet function and serum thromboxane B2 production were fully inhibited by all formulations of 50 mg aspirin and above, but not by doses of controlled release aspirin below 50 mg doses. The excretion of urinary 6-keto-PGF1 alpha (a major metabolite of prostacyclin) was significantly reduced at controlled release aspirin doses above 100 mg and at all doses of rapidly absorbed aspirin tested. As no significant reduction in the urinary 6-keto-PGF1 alpha production was observed at doses of controlled release aspirin of 50 and 100 mg and below, it appeared that these doses did not inhibit the systemic vascular cyclooxygenase. These data are consistent with a selective inhibition of platelet function by daily doses of 50 and 100 mg of the controlled release formulation of aspirin.
