Liparin uses and description

Sort by popularity
Liparin - Used for: Preventing harmful blood clots.

Liparin is an anticoagulant. It works by blocking reactions in the body that lead to blood clots.

Pharmacology: Inhibits reactions that lead to clotting of blood and formation of fibrin clots. Liparin acts at multiple sites in the normal coagulation system.

Indication: Prophylaxis and treatment of venous thrombosis and its extensions, pulmonary embolism (PE), peripheral arterial embolism, and atrial fibrillation with embolization; diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic consumption coagulopathies (disseminated intravascular coagulation [DIC]); prevention of postoperative deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and PE. Also used to maintain catheter patency and as an anticoagulant in blood transfusions, extracorporeal circulation, dialysis, and laboratory samples.

Unfractionated Liparin is a highly acidic mucopolysaccharide formed of equal parts of sulfated D-glucosamine and D-glucuronic acid with sulfaminic bridges. The molecular weight ranges from 3000 to 30,000 daltons. Liparin is obtained from liver, lung, mast cells, and other cells of vertebrates. Liparin is a well-known and commonly used anticoagulant which has antithrombotic properties. Liparin inhibits reactions that lead to the clotting of blood and the formation of fibrin clots both in vitro and in vivo. Small amounts of Liparin in combination with antithrombin III, a Liparin cofactor,) can inhibit thrombosis by inactivating Factor Xa and thrombin. Once active thrombosis has developed, larger amounts of Liparin can inhibit further coagulation by inactivating thrombin and preventing the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin. Liparin also prevents the formation of a stable fibrin clot by inhibiting the activation of the fibrin stabilizing factor. Liparin prolongs several coagulation tests. Of all the coagulation tests, activated partial prothrombin time (aPTT) is the most clinically important value.

Liparin is an anticoagulant (blood thinner) that prevents the formation of blood clots.

Liparin is used to treat and prevent blood clots in the veins, arteries, or lung. Liparin is also used before surgery to reduce the risk of blood clots.

Liparin may also be used for other purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

Liparin, a highly-sulfated glycosaminoglycan, is widely used as an injectable anticoagulant, and has the highest negative charge density of any known biological molecule. It can also be used to form an inner anticoagulant surface on various experimental and medical devices such as test tubes and renal dialysis machines. Pharmaceutical grade Liparin is derived from mucosal tissues of slaughtered meat animals such as porcine (pig) intestine or bovine (cow) lung. Although used principally in medicine for anticoagulation, the true physiological role in the body remains unclear, because blood anti-coagulation is achieved mostly by endothelial cell-derived heparan sulfate proteoglycans. Liparin is usually stored within the secretory granules of mast cells and released only into the vasculature at sites of tissue injury. It has been proposed that, rather than anticoagulation, the main purpose of Liparin is in a defensive mechanism at sites of tissue injury against invading bacteria and other foreign materials. In addition, it is preserved across a number of widely different species, including some invertebrates that do not have a similar blood coagulation system.
