QuickView for low-molecular-weight heparin (compound)

PubChem Substance
Name: Heparin, Low-Molecular-Weight
PubChem Substance ID: 3831888
Description: Heparin fractions with a molecular weight usually between 4000 and 6000 kD. These low-molecular-weight fractions are effective antithrombotic agents. Their administration reduces the risk of hemorrhage, they have a longer half-life, and their platelet interactions are reduced in comparison to unfractionated heparin. They also provide an effective prophylaxis against postoperative major pulmonary embolism.
