Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
A synthetic pentasaccharide factor Xa inhibitor: Binds selectively to ATIII potentiating its neutralizing action on Factor Xa. Neutralization of Factor Xa decreases the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin, and the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin (ie decreases the potential for clot formation)
