There is less risk of bleeding, however, with LMWHs than with standard heparin. LMWHs are obtained by various manufacturing processes that may result in a certain variability in their pharmacological profile. Newer anticoagulants have been designed which more specifically inhibit activated coagulation factors and may potentially have fewer undesirable interactions and side effects. They selectively inhibit thrombin or other enzymes higher in the coagUlation cascade (Fig. 6). 1. Direct Thrombin Inhibitors Various structural domains, including the catalytic site and the two exosite binding sites, regulate thrombin's interactions with biological substrates, pro- The Coagulation Pathway and Antithrombotic Strategies 21 vi ding pharmacologists with targets for the development of specific thrombin inhibitors.

Aspirin is the most widely clinically used anti thrombotic agent today for long term oral treatment (ROTH and CALVERLEY 1994). Aspirin inhibits platelet aggregation by inhibiting generation of TXA 2 by activated platelets via the irreversible acetylation of the cyclooxygenase enzyme. The irreversible nature of inhibition means that TXA 2 production is lost for the life span of the platelet. The effectiveness of aspirin is achieved at a relatively low incidence of severe adverse events. However, platelets can be activated by agonists, such as thrombin and ADP, through other non-cyclo-oxygenase dependent pathways, thus limiting the effectiveness of aspirin to shut down completely the thrombotic process.

1996). The third KPI domain and the carboxy-terminal portion of the molecule are apparently without inhibitory effect per se, but they have been reported to facilitate the binding of TFPI to the cell surface, lipoproteins, glycosaminoglycans and heparin (WESSELSCHMIDT et al. 1993). This portion is essential for the optimal anticoagulant effect of TFPI. TFPI inhibits fVlla/TF activity in an fXa dependent manner. It involves the formation of a quaternary complex containing fXa-TFPI-fVlla/TF in which the second Kunitz domain of TFPI binds fXa and the first Kunitz domain binds fVlla (BRazE et al.
