ABSTRACT
The effects of aspirin ingestion on blood fibrinolytic activity, serum immunoreactive insulin levels, FFA levels, HGH levels and blood glucose concentration were studied in the following subjects: (1) Fifteen males and 11 females, 20–30 years of age; (2) nine males and six females, 35–44 years of age; (3) eight males and two females, 45–55 years of age. The dose of aspirin employed was 0.6 Gm., q.i.d. All studies were performed on fasting blood samples drawn before and after ingestion of the drug. Control data were obtained on fasting bloods drawn on consecutive days where the subjects ingested no aspirin. The females 20–30 years of age were the only population to show significant changes following ingestion of aspirin. These subjects displayed marked shortening of the euglobulin lysis time, slight elevation in fasting blood sugar levels and serum immunoreactive insulin levels following aspirin ingestion. Serum FFA and HGH levels were not significantly altered by aspirin ingestion.
