What are Coagulation Modifiers?

Coagulation Modifiers are a broad class of medications that affect the blood coagulation cascade in different places to either prevent or promote blood clot formation.

Coagulation is the process by which blood changes from a liquid to a gel, forming a blood clot. Naturally, blood clotting is an essential process that prevents excessive bleeding when a blood vessel is injured.

Coagulation Modifiers are used in medical events to either prevent excessive bleeding, prevent clotting, dissolve clots or affect blood viscosity.

Coagulation Modifiers that prevent the formation of blood clots include:
•   Antiplatelet Agents
•   Anticoagulation Agents
•   Thrombolytics

Coagulation Modifiers that promote the formation of blood clots include:
•   Anticoagulant Reversal Agents
•   Heparin Antagonists
•   Platelet-Stimulating Agents

Coagulation Modifiers that effect blood viscosity include:
•   Hemorrheologic Agents
