It is not possible. The regulation of human body temperature (thermoregulation) is very subtle. Wikipedia article about thermoregulation contains a very nice graph about that mechanism. The labels are not described in the text in detail and the reference in the caption does not include this picture. Picture is a work by one JW Dietrich and I also searched ...

Kudos for finding that study on mice! I also googled a bit for references.. From "Physiology Secrets" (page 315) by Hershel Raff, published in 2003: Furthermore, in one other source the author says that aspirin can even induce hyperthermia (elevated body temperature) ("Applied Pharmacology for the Dental Hygienist" by Elena Bablenis ...

Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) are anti-inflammatory agents that are different structurally and mechanistically from the anti-inflammatory steroids. NSAIDS act by a competitive and reversible active site inhibition of Cyclooxygenase (COX) enzyme. The inhibition of COX reduces the local synthesis of Prostaglandins (PGs) that include pro-...

Conclusions: This Cochrane meta-analysis of 10 studies of varying quality examined the effects of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants in adults with ARDS. This intervention may produce little or no difference in ...

Tetracyclines such as doxycycline primarily work as antimicrobials by inhibiting protein synthesis in bacteria. However, these drugs can also act on eukaryotic cells like human immune cells, resulting in an anti-inflammatory effect that may require a lower dose. This may be part of the reason a sub-antimicrobial dosage is effective. A good summary here. To ...

This answer is about the effect of NSAIDs and steroids on the resorption of disc herniation and pain. There seem to be no clinical trials in which NSAIDs or other drugs would slow down the resorption of disc herniation. Results of in vitro studies suggest that steroids may be able to delay resorption, but NSAIDs less likely. STEROIDS According to the ...

Although ACCP recommends 7- to 10-day aspirin intake cessation before surgery in patients with low cardiovascular risk, the results of our study suggest that aspirin intake cessation not longer than 96 hours can be adequate. The recommendation to stop aspirin intake for 7 to 10 days is based only on the concern for the mature platelets during exposure to ...
