Melagatran and ximelagatran Pharmacological characteristics and anaesthesiological aspects


, : Melagatran and ximelagatran Pharmacological characteristics and anaesthesiological aspects. Anaesthesist 52(12): 1171-1175, Dezember

Melagatran is a direct inhibitor of thrombin and - like its oral prodrug ximelagatran - a newly developed dipetide with high antithrombotic efficacy. They present a linear dose-response, a short plasma half-life and the therapeutic range may be advantageous compared with classic anticoagulants such as heparins or vitamin K antagonists. The results of clinical studies for prevention and treatment of thromboembolic complications are encouraging. The use of melagatran and ximelagatran will gain significance in the perioperative management, thus being of particular importance for anaesthesiology and critical care medicine in the near future.

Human ovarian carcinoma A2780 cells resistant to VM-26, a topoisomerase II-targeting drug, were cloned. Cross-resistance test showed that the resistant cells were 300 fold more tolerant toward VM-26 than were parental cells, whereas tolerance towa...
