The researchers are not recommending that if you are healthy and taking daily aspirin you should necessarily stop.
As the authors themselves point out, the study doesn't "directly address the question of whether healthy older persons who have been using aspirin for primary prevention should continue or discontinue its use".
The team explains that this is a study looking at people over 70 who were taking aspirin to prevent the first attack and did not include those individuals who were taking aspirin after their first heart attack or stroke on medical advice to prevent a second attack.
Peter Rothwell, professor of neurology at the Centre for the Prevention of Stroke and Dementia at the University of Oxford, said taking the tablets if healthy, over the age of 70 and have not had a previous heart attack or stroke, is "really of very little benefit".
Participants took either aspirin or a placebo daily over a four-and-a-half year period.
They were also at "significantly" increased risk of serious internal bleeding. The trial found 90.3 percent of the people who took aspirin remained alive with no persistent physical disability or dementia, compared with 90.5 percent of people on the placebo.
The "tentative finding" required further investigation as researchers in other studies suggest aspirin may prevent cancer, he said.
But for older, healthy people, "the risks outweigh the benefits for taking low-dose aspirin", Murray says.
Popping an aspirin pill everyday doesn't help older people to live longer and it may even have the opposite effect, a new study reveals.
ASPREE was led by Monash University in Australia and the Berman Center for Outcomes and Clinical Research in the USA. "But not only did it not decrease risk of disability or death, it did not decrease the risk of heart attack and stroke, and there was an increase in the rate of death".
Significant bleeding - a known risk of regular aspirin use - was also measured. This counted the uptick in upper gastrointestinal bleeding (HR 1.87, 95% CI 1.32-2.66) and intracranial bleeds (HR 1.50, 95% CI 1.11-2.02).
Major hemorrhages were found to be more common in the aspirin group (8.6 versus 6.2 per 1,000 person-years, HR 1.38, 95% CI 1.18-1.62).
And what about people with high blood pressure or high cholesterol who might be taking other medicines to mitigate a higher risk of heart attack or stroke?
The clinical trial did not include people who take aspirin for medical reasons as advised by their doctor, including those who have already suffered a heart attack or stroke. On the contrary they may be grievously harmed by them.
Ultimately according to third study escalated all-cause mortality amid evidently wholesome older adults who secured daily aspirin as compared to those consuming placebo and was assigned mainly to cancer related deaths.
In older people, any effect of aspirin on reducing heart disease or stroke might be expected to be enhanced due to their higher underlying risk.
With the growing proportion of elderly people in our community, a major focus of preventive medicine is to maintain the independence of this age-group for as long as possible.
