Description

Tranexamic Acid: Mechanism of Action
 - TXA is an anti-fibrinolytic
 - TXA is a synthetic analog of the amino acid lysine
 - TXA blocks lysine binding sites on plasminogen which is essential for binding fibrin → preventing activation of plasminogen to plasmin
 - TXA ultimately reduces fibrinolysis stabilizes the fibrin-rich clot
