Comparison of the antithrombotic effects of low molecular weight heparinoid KB-101 and heparin in a rat experimental model.

1. We compared the low molecular weight heparinoid KB-101 and heparin with regard to suppression of experimental thrombus formation and effects on bleeding time, prothrombin time (PT), and activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) in rats. 2. KB-101 exerted a similar antithrombotic activity as that of heparin. 3. Heparin prolonged bleeding time, PT, and… CONTINUE READING
