Description

Desirudin is a highly potent and selective inhibitor of free circulating and clot-bound thrombin. The anticoagulant properties of desirudin are demonstrated by its ability to prolong the clotting time of human or rat plasma whether induced directly (thrombin time) or via the intrinsic (aPTT) or extrinsic (PT) pathways.
