How it works
Tranexamic acid competitively inhibits activation of plasminogen(via binding to the kringle domain), thereby reducing conversion of plasminogen to plasmin (fibrinolysin), an enzyme that degrades fibrin clots, fibrinogen, and other plasma proteins, including the procoagulant factors V and VIII. Tranexamic acid also directly inhibits plasmin activity, but higher doses are required than are needed to reduce plasmin formation.
USAGE AND SAFETY
Hypotension has occurred, particularly after rapid intravenous dosage. Thrombotic complications have been reported in patients receiving tranexamic acid, but these are usually a consequence of its inappropriate use. There have been a few instances of transient disturbance of color vision associated with use of tranexamic acid. Hypersensitivity skin reactions have also been reported.
