Asprin vs salicylic acid

From: "Rodney Barton" <rbarton@hsc.unt.edu>


The article in the AIS bulletin on aspirin, "A Solution for Erwinia" by Adam Fisco, is very interesting but I was left with a question. The article talks about aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) but uses the abbreviation "SA" for it.  SA would be a more fitting abbreviation for salicylic acid. Indeed, one of the papers cited is on the effect of salicylic acid.   Aspirin and salicylic acid are NOT the same, but could have similar biological activity.  Is there some confusion here or do both of these compounds show this effect?  Anyone familiar with this work?
