Description of Dalteparin

Dalteparin: A low molecular weight, synthetic heparin. As an anticoagulant/antithrombotic agent, dalteparin enhances the inhibition of Factor Xa and thrombin by antithrombin. Compared to unfractionated heparins, the use of dalteparin is associated with lower incidences of osteoporosis and heparin-induced thrombocytopenia. (NCI04)
