Thrombin inhibitors

What are Thrombin inhibitors

Thrombin inhibitors are anticoagulants that bind to and inhibit the activity of thrombin therefore prevent blood clot formation. Thrombin inhibitors inactivate free thrombin and also the thrombin that is bound to fibrin. Thrombin has many important functions in the clotting pathway, so it is a good target for anticoagulants drugs.

Thrombin inhibitors are used to prevent arterial and venous thrombosis. They can be used to prevent and treat deep vein thrombosis, or used as prophylaxis in atrial fibrillation to avoid thromboembolism.
