Anticoagulants, Antiplatelets, and Thrombolytics (Methods in by Shaker A. Mousa

By Shaker A. Mousa

1This number of assessment articles highlights the most recent improvement of antithrombotics and offers confirmed experimental tools for the additional improvement of recent and more desirable anticoagulants. one of the state of the art advancements reviewed are the radical utilization of low molecular weight heparins, such antithrombin brokers because the hirudin, and such antiplatelet medications because the GPIIb/IIIa inhibitors and ADP receptor antagonists. extra techniques mentioned contain aspirin and clopidogrel, the multiplied use of polytherapeutic techniques, antiproteases (factors IIa, Xa, and VIIa), tissue issue focusing on, platelet receptor focusing on, and antithrombin III modulation.

Introduction Despite the research and development efforts in newer anticoagulants, unfractionated heparin (UFH) and low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) will continue to play a pivotal role in the management of thrombotic disorders. Although bleeding and heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) represent major side effects of this drug, it has remained the anticoagulant of choice for the prophylaxis and treatment of arterial and venous thrombotic disorders, surgical anticoagulation, and interventional usage.
