Anticoagulants

  1. 1. ANTICOAGULANTS PRESENTER – DR.SOWMYA.S.M
  2. 2. ANTICOAGULANTS  Drugs that help prevent the clotting (coagulation) of blood  Coagulation will occur instantaneously once a blood vessel has been severed  Blood begins to solidify to prevent excessive blood loss and to prevent invasive substances from entering the bloodstream.
  3. 3. CLASSIFICATION ANTICOAGULANTS USED IN VIVO PARENTERAL ORAL USED IN VITRO HEPARIN CALCIUM COMPLEXING AGENTS
  4. 4. 1) USED IN VIVO: A) PARENTERAL ANTICOAGULANTS: - INDIRECT THROMBIN INHIBITORS: - DIRECT THROMBIN INHIBITORS: Heparin Lepirudin Low molecular weight heparins Bivalirudin Fondaparinux Argatroban Danaparoid
  5. 5. B) ORAL ANTICOAGULANTS: - COUMARIN DERIVATIVES: -INDANDIONE DERIVATIVE: Bishydroxcoumarin (dicumarol) Phenindione Warfarin sodium Acenocoumarol -DIRECT FACTOR Xa INHIBITORS: Ethylbiscoumacetate Rivaroxaban -ORAL DIRECT THROMBIN INHIBITOR: Dabigatran etexilate
  6. 6. 2) USED IN VITRO: A) HEPARIN: B) CALCIUM COMPLEXING AGENTS: Sodium citrate Sodium oxalate Sodium edetate
  7. 7. 1930s Heparin 1950s 1990s 20021970s Warfarin LMWHs Factor Xa inhibitor DTIs Argatroban Bivalirudin Lepirudin Iprivask Fondaparinux Enoxaparin Dalteparin Tinzaparin 1980s 2010-12 DTI and Factor Xa inhibitors Dabigatran Rivaroxaban Apixaban Developmental History – Current FDA Approved Anticoagulants
  8. 8. HEPARIN  Heparin is a non-uniform mixture of straight chain mucopolysaccharides with MW 10,000 to 20,000.  It contains polymers of two sulfated disaccharide units: D-glucosamine-L-iduronic acid D-glucosamine-D-glucuronic acid  It is present in all tissues containing mast cells; richest sources are lung, liver and intestinal mucosa.
  9. 9. ANTICOAGULANT ACTION OF HEPARIN HEPARIN Activates plasma AT III Heparin-AT III complex Binds to clotting factors of intrinsic and common pathways (Xa, IIa, IXa, XIa, XIIa and XIIIa) and inactivates them
  10. 10. OTHER ACTIONS OF HEPARIN  Heparin in higher doses inhibits platelet aggregation and prolongs bleeding time.  Heparin in lower doses helps in lipaemia clearing.
  11. 11. PHARMACOKINETICS  Heparin is not absorbed orally.  If Injected i.v. - acts instantaneously.  After s.c. injection anticoagulant effect develops after ~60 min.  Bioavailability of s.c. heparin is inconsistent.  Heparin does not cross blood-brain barrier or placenta (it is the anticoagulant of choice during pregnancy).  It is metabolized in liver by heparinase.  Fragments are excreted in urine.
  12. 12.  Heparin should not be mixed with penicillin, tetracyclines, hydrocortisone or NA in the same syringe or infusion bottle.  Heparinized blood is not suitable for blood counts (alters the shape of RBCs and WBCs), fragility testing and complement fixation tests.
  13. 13. ADVERSE EFFECTS  Bleeding due to overdose - most serious complication.  Thrombocytopenia - mild and transient.  Transient and reversible alopecia is infrequent. Serum transaminase levels may rise.  Osteoporosis - long-term use of relatively high doses.  Hypersensitivity reactions – rare.
  14. 14. CONTRAINDICATIONS  Bleeding disorders, history of heparin induced thrombocytopenia.  Severe hypertension, threatened abortion, piles, g.i. ulcers.  Subacute bacterial endocarditis, large malignancies, tuberculosis.  Ocular and neurosurgery, lumbar puncture.  Chronic alcoholics, cirrhosis, renal failure.
  15. 15. Low molecular weight (LMW) heparins  Heparin has been fractionated into LMW forms (MW 3000–7000) by different techniques.  LMWHs are defined as heparin salts having an average molecular weight of less than 8000 Da.  These are obtained by various methods of fractionation or depolymerisation of polymeric heparin.
  16. 16. MECHANISM OF ACTION  Selectively inhibit factor Xa with little effect on IIa.  Act only by inducing conformational change in AT III  Hence LMW heparins have smaller effect on aPTT and whole blood clotting time than unfractionated heparin (UFH)  Also, they have lesser antiplatelet action—less interference with haemostasis.  Lower incidence of haemorrhagic complications compared to UFH  Elimination - primarily by renal excretion.
  17. 17. ADVANTAGES OF LMW HEPARIN  Better subcutaneous bioavailability (70–90%) compared to UFH (20–30%)  Longer and more consistent monoexponential t½(4–6 hours)  Since aPTT/clotting times are not prolonged, laboratory monitoring is not needed.  Risk of osteoporosis after long term use is much less.
  18. 18. INDICATIONS  Prophylaxis of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in high-risk patients undergoing surgery.  Treatment of established deep vein thrombosis.  Unstable angina and MI: they have largely replaced continuous infusion of UFH.  To maintain patency of cannulae and shunts in dialysis patients.
  19. 19. A number of LMW heparins have been marketed-  Enoxaparin  Reviparin  Nadroparin  Dalteparin  Parnaparin  Ardeparin
  20. 20. FONDAPARINUX  The pentasaccharide with specific sequence that binds to AT III with high affinity to selectively inactivate factor Xa without binding thrombin (factor IIa), has been recently produced synthetically.  Bioavailability - If injected s.c. is 100%  Excreted unchanged by the kidney.
  21. 21. DIRECT THROMBIN INHIBITORS  Unlike heparin, these recently developed anticoagulants bind directly to thrombin and inactivate it without the need to combine with and activate AT III.  Lepirudin  Bivalirudin  Argatroban
  22. 22. ORAL ANTICOAGULANTS  Act indirectly by interfering with the synthesis of vit K dependent clotting factors in liver.  Apparently behave as competitive antagonists of vit K and lower the plasma levels of functional clotting factors in a dose-dependent manner.  they inhibit the enzyme vit K epoxide reductase (VKOR) and interfere with regeneration of the active hydroquinone form of vit K which acts as a cofactor for the enzyme γ-glutamyl carboxylase.
  23. 23. MECHANISM OF ACTION OF ORAL ANTICOAGULANTS
  24. 24. DIRECT FACTOR XA INHIBITORS  Act rapidly without a lag time  Have short-lasting action.  Rivaroxaban
  25. 25. ORAL DIRECT THROMBIN INHIBITOR Dabigatran etexilate  Reversibly blocks the catalytic site of thrombin and produces a rapid (within 2 hours) anticoagulant action.  Oral bioavailability is low.  No laboratory monitoring is required.  The plasma t½ is 12–14 hours.  Duration of action 24 hours.
  26. 26. USES OF ANTICOAGULANTS  Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE)  Myocardial infarction (MI)  Unstable angina  Rheumatic heart disease; Atrial fibrillation(AF)  Cerebrovascular disease  Vascular surgery, prosthetic heart valves, retinal vessel thrombosis, extracorporeal circulation, haemodialysis  Defibrination syndrome or ‘disseminated intravascular coagulation’
