The Aspirin Foundation helps to increase awareness and medical research interest in this vitally important medicine by stimulating the distribution and exchange of information and discussion on all aspects of Aspirin, including current research as well as old and new therapeutic uses for it.

The Aspirin Foundation is guided by an independent International Scientific Advisory Board.


NSAIDs and COVID-19

Professor Garret FitzGerald MD FRS, from the Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics at the University of Philadelphia, has given some logical scientific guidance regarding the use of regular medication such as NSAIDS and ACE inhibitors during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For further information please see:
FitzGerald GA. Misguided drug advice for COVID-19. Science 2020 March 20th letters 10.1126/science.abb8034  https://science.sciencemag.org/content/early/2020/03/20/science.abb8034

The FDA [19th March 2020] and the EMA [18th March 2020] have released statements explaining that there is no current scientific evidence to connect NSAIDS with worsening COVID-19.  Both agencies continue to monitor the situation.  The full statements can be read below:
