Since there is now a discussion about ASPIRIN, I have another question.
I wonder whether somebody knows what are the TARGET ORGANS or TARGET
CELL populations for this first tabletted drug? Does it act on all
cells, selectively, indirectly...?
Yes, there is some highly awarded knowledge about biochemical
mechanisms of action. Is this everywhere in the body? Are there
specific target tissues? If target tissues have been identified, is
there any hierarchy among them as has been demonstrated, for instance,
for vitamin D and estradiol?
I wonder what is known about this old and most widely used drug?
