Argatroban

Argatroban is an anticoagulant (thrombin inhibitor) agent prescribed for thrombosis treatment in patients with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (low platelet levels).

Bemiparin

Bemiparin is used for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis with or without pulmonary (lung related) embolism, for the prophylaxis (prevention) of venous thromboembolism in both surgical and non-surgical patients, and for clot prevention in an extracorporeal system during dialysisfor the kidneys.

Betrixaban

• Betrixaban is prescribed to prevent venous thromboembolism in adult patients who are hospitalized for an acute illness and are at a greater risk of developing a clot due to the restricted mobility or any thromboembolic related risk factors. Betrixaban has not been studied in patients with prosthetic heart valves. • Betrixaban inhibits the factor Xa which is important for the clotting of blood. It is therefore used to thin the blood so as to avoid the formation of clots by interfering with the mechanism of blood coagulation.
