It is interesting that it looks like the USPSTF guideline for this was last updated in 2016 (according to the date here: https://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/RecommendationStatementFinal/aspirin-to-prevent-cardiovascular-disease-and-cancer). Though it is only one trial, ASPREE (from 2018) seems like pretty reasonable evidence to suggest that aspirin for primary prevention should be recommended against (rather than "insufficient evidence" to make a recommendation). I'm looking forward to seeing what the USPSTF has to say about this when they do make an update to their guideline.

Same here, Chris! My clinical colleagues and I were *just* talking about this exact topic as it pertains to different core measures. It'll be interesting to see what changes.
