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.
Coagulation modifiers that prevent blood clot formation are anticoagulants, antiplatelet drugs and thrombolytic drugs. Those that promote clot formation are fibrinolytics. Heparin antagonists and platelet-stimulating agents are used to reduce the risk of bleeding.
