Pharmacological properties and pharmacokinetics

The drug has a vigorous activity with respect to the factor Xa a

nd weak activity towards the factor IIa. Unlike unfractionated standard heparin, the activity of the antiaggregate type is more pronounced than that of the anticoagulant type. The drug does not affect the state of platelet aggregation.

During the subcutaneous administration of the agent, it is rapidly and completely absorbed from the injection site. The maximum peak in activity of the main component of enoxaparin with respect to factor Xa occurs after 3-5 hours. This value corresponds to a concentration level of 1.6 μg / ml after the administration of 40 ml.

The liver metabolizes a small amount of enoxaparin, which forms low-activity metabolites.
The half-life of the drug lasts 4 hours. Its excretion occurs through urine in a pure state or in the form of metabolites.
