According to aspirin professional class labeling, enteric coated aspirin products are erratically absorbed from the GI tract1
Plain aspirin is associated with local GI injury, which can be asymptomatic2
In patients using aspirin for secondary prevention, discontinuation led to a 46% higher rate of cardiovascular events3

aspirin delivery in over 50 years
