Fragmin Injection (dalteparin sodium injection) is a sterile, low molecular weight heparin. It is available in single-dose, prefilled syringes preassembled with a needle guard device, and multiple-dose vials LMWH - Low Molecular Weight Heparin as the name implies is a group of heparins with low molecular weights. This is not how heparin naturally occurs in our bodies. LMWH is made by extracting the heparin and then fractionating it by methods like oxidative depolymerisation, alkaline beta-eliminative cleavage, deaminative cleavage etc A low molecular weight heparin (Fragmin) for routine hemodialysis: a crossover trial comparing three dose regimens with a standard regimen of commercial unfractionated heparin, Clin Nephrol 1989; 32: 290 - 6 The issue of how and when to monitor low‐molecular‐weight heparin (LMWH) therapy was raised from the beginning of the clinical use of these compounds, almost 20 years ago. Laboratory monitoring of LMWH was suggested mainly because the new compounds were to replace unfractionated heparin (UFH), which definitely required monitoring Low Molecular Weight Heparins dalteparin (Fragmin ®) enoxaparin (Lovenox ®) tinzaparin (Innohep ®) Factor Xa inhibitors apixaban - (ELIQUIS®) Betrixaban - BEVYXXA ® capsules edoxaban tosylate - SAVAYSA ™ fondaparinux (Arixtra ®) rivaroxaban -XARELTO ®-----Thrombocytopenia incidence: LMWH's: 0.6% Unfractionated heparin: 3.5% Protein.

Known hypersensitivity to Fragmin or other low molecular weight heparins and/or heparins e.g. history of confirmed or suspected immunologically mediated heparin induced thrombocytopenia (type II); acute gastroduodenal ulcer; cerebral haemorrhage; known haemorrhagic diathesis or other active haemorrhage; serious coagulation disorders; acute or sub-acute septic endocarditis; haemorrhagic. Low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) is an anticoagulant that is given by injection under the skin. Anticoagulants are medicines that treat and prevent abnormal blood clots. There are three LMWHs available in Canada: enoxaparin (Lovenox®), dalteparin (Fragmin®), and tinzaparin (Innohep®). The dose of LMWH will depend on whether it is being. low molecular weight heparins. FRAGMIN should be used with extreme caution in patients with history of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia. Hemorrhage: FRAGMIN, like other anticoagulants, should be used with extreme caution in patients who have an increased risk of hemorrhage, such as those with severe uncontrolled hypertension COMPARISON OF FORMULARY LOW MOLECULAR WEIGHT HEPARINS and FONDAPARINUX Drug dalteparin (FRAGMIN) enoxaparin (LOVENOX) fondaparinux (ARIXTRA) Indications/Dose Prophylaxis of DVT/PE 1 Treatment of DVT/PE Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) 5000 units SC daily (≥ eGFR 30 mL/min, 41 to 100kg) 200 units/kg SC daily1,2 2 - 40 mg SC daily (eGFR ≥ 30 mL/min Comparison of low-molecular-weight heparin with unfractionated heparin acutely and with placebo for 6 weeks in the management of unstable coronary artery disease: Fragmin in Unstable Coronary Artery Disease Study (FRIC).

The low‐molecular‐weight heparin products dalteparin, enoxaparin and tinzaparin are very similar but not identical. The methods used to chemically prepare these commercially available products differ, and a number of studies have shown distinct differences in their in vitro and in vivo pharmacology. Unfortunately, only a few studies have directly compared different low‐molecular heparins. Low Molecular Weight Heparin (LMWH), as its name suggests, is derived from Unfractionated Heparin (UFH) by digestion or depolymerization of longer chains of heparin into shorter chains by chemical or enzymatic means. These short strands make LMWH last longer and act more predictably in the body than UFH Heparin, Low-Molecular-Weight Heparin, lågmolekylärt Svensk definition. Heparinfraktioner med molekylvikter mellan 4000 och 6000 kD. Dessa lågmolekylära fraktioner har god blodproppslösande effekt. De kan tillföras med liten blödningsrisk, har längre halveringstid och mindre inverkan på blodplättarna än ofraktionerat heparin
Summary: A randomized controlled trial was undertaken comparing the efficacy and safety of low molecular weight (LMW) heparin (Fragmin) with sodium heparin for prophylaxis against postoperative thromboembolic disease after major gynaecological surgery. Women were randomized to receive subcutaneous injections of 5,000 U of either once daily LMW heparin or twice daily sodium heparin Background Prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism with low-molecular-weight heparins in patients undergoing major orthopedic surgery is currently initiated according to at least 3 different regimens. In Europe, traditionally, prophylaxis is started 12 hours before surgery, whereas in North America it is initiated 12 to 48 hours postoperatively
FRAGMIN is used for indications other than haemodialysis, provided that the recommended dosages are not exceeded (see section 4.2 ).

Dalteparin sodium. 6.7 Physicochemical Properties. The active substance of Fragmin is the sodium salt of low molecular weight heparin extracted from the intestinal mucosa of pig and is manufactured by controlled depolymerisation of heparin to produce sulphated polysaccharide chains having an average molecular weight of 5,000 Da with 90% between 2,000 and 9,000 Da
Background Low-molecular-weight heparin has a number of pharmacological and pharmacokinetic advantages over unfractionated heparin that make it potentially suitable, when used in combination with aspirin, for the treatment of unstable coronary artery disease Low-molecular-weight heparin is a relatively recent addition to the list of therapies for prophylaxis and treatment of deep venous thrombosis (DVT). As a prophylactic, low-molecular-weight heparin. Allina Health Laboratory Test Catalog Low molecular weight heparin In medicine, low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) is a class of medication used as an anticoagulant in diseases that feature thrombosis, as well as for prophylaxis in situations that lead to a high risk of thrombosis. Thrombotic disease or thrombosis is the formation of a clot within a blood vessel which interferes with the blood supply to tissues and causes problems such as deep vein.
Low-molecular-weight heparins currently available in the United States include enoxaparin (Lovenox), dalteparin (Fragmin) and ardeparin (Normiflo), while nadroparin (Fraxiparine), tinzaparin. Low molecular weight heparin fractions may contain between four and 25 distinct molecular fragments. Most low molecular weight heparin fractions have a molecular weight between 4000 and 9000 daltons. Each heparin fragment may be comprised of two to 50 monosaccharide units and each exhibits a varying degree of activity
