Coagulation modifiers

What are Coagulation modifiers?

Coagulation modifiers are drugs that act on the blood coagulation pathway in different places to prevent or promote blood clot formation.

  • Anticoagulants and antiplatelet drugs are used to prevent blood clot formation.
  • Thrombolytic drugs (also called fibrinolytic drugs) are used to break up blood clots.
  • Heparin antagonists, anticoagulant reversal agents, and platelet-stimulating agents are used to reduce the risk of bleeding.
