Drugs in ATC category "B01AB04":

    - Dalteparin, a low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) prepared by nitrous acid degradation of unfractionated heparin of porcine intestinal mucosa origin, is an anticoagulant. It is composed of strongly acidic sulphated polysaccharide chains with an average molecular weight of 5000 and about 90% of the material within the range of 2000-9000. LMWHs have a more predictable response, a greater bioavailability, and a longer anti-Xa half life than unfractionated heparin. Dalteparin can also be safely... - Dalteparin is a low molecular weight heparin and belongs to a class of medications called anticoagulants or antithrombotic agents . It helps prevent blood clots from forming or from getting bigger, but it does not dissolve existing blood clots. Dalteparin works by blocking clotting factors and enzymes that help the blood to clot. Circulating blood clots are dangerous because they can cause medical problems such as heart attack, stroke, and pulmonary embolism. Dalteparin is used to treat... - Tinzaparin is a low molecular weight heparin (LMWH), produced by enzymatic depolymerization of unfractionated heparin from porcine intestinal mucosa. It is a heterogeneous mixture of with an average molecular weight between 5500 and 7500 daltons. Tinzaparin is composed of molecules with and without a special site for high affinity binding to antithrombin III (ATIII). This complex greatly accelerates the inhibition of factor Xa. It is an anticoagulant and considered an antithrombotic. Tinzaparin...
