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.
