  • Amicar (Aminocaproic acid)
  • Cyklokapron (Tranexamic acid)
  • human fibrinogen
  • Fibryga
  • Lysteda
  • tranexamic acid injection
  • tranexamic acid oral

Amicar (Aminocaproic acid)

Aminocaproic acid is a derivative and analogue of the amino acid lysine, which makes it an effective inhibitor for enzymes that bind that particular residue. Such enzymes include proteolytic enzymes like plasmin, the enzyme responsible for fibrinolysis. Wikipedia

Cyklokapron (Tranexamic acid)

Tranexamic acid is a medication used to treat or prevent excessive blood loss from major trauma, postpartum bleeding, surgery, tooth removal, nosebleeds, and heavy menstruation. It is also used for hereditary angioedema. It is taken either orally or by injection into a vein

Human fibrinogen

Fibrinogen is a glycoprotein complex, produced in the liver, that circulates in the blood of all vertebrates. During tissue and vascular injury, it is converted enzymatically by thrombin to fibrin and then to a fibrin-based blood clot. Fibrin clots function primarily to occlude blood vessels to stop bleeding.


This drug comes in the form of powder and solvent which can be injected/infused into a body. Fibryga contains human fibrinogen and it is used for the treatment of acute bleeding episodes in adults and children with congenital fibrinogen deficiency, including afibrinogenemia and hypofibrinogenemia.

Lysteda (Tranexamic acid)

Lysteda contains Tranexamic acid, this acid is a medication used to stop or reduce unwanted bleeding. When you bleed your body forms clots to stop the bleeding. In some people, these break down causing too much bleeding. Tranexamic Acid stops these clots from dissolving and so reduces unwanted bleeding. Tranexamic Acid is used to prevent or reduce bleeding for a short period in many different conditions.
