Its mechanism of action is based on the inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis. Prostaglandins play an essential role in the onset of fever, pain and inflammation. Experimental data suggest that ibuprofen can competitively inhibit the effect of low doses of acetylsalicylic acid on platelet aggregation when administered concomitantly.
