Improving Your Blood’s Clotting Ability

Antifibrinolytic agents (such as aminocaproic acid or tranexamic acid) are often used in patients with bleeding disorders. They work by preventing the breakdown of a blood clot once it has started to form, helping to improve your body’s natural clotting mechanism.

These agents are normally used to treat mucous membrane bleeding (nosebleeds, etc.) and are often used in combination with desmopressin or von Willebrand factor-containing concentrates.
