Summary of Clinical Use
Used to treat venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism and used with other drugs to treat occlusion in coronary arteries.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Anisindione prevents the formation of active procoagulation factors II, VII, IX, and X, as well as the anticoagulant proteins C and S, in the liver by inhibiting vitamin K-dependent gamma-carboxylase, the enzyme responsible for vitamin K-mediated gamma-carboxylation of precursor proteins.
