Substance Name: Enoxaparin sodium [USAN:USP:INN:BAN]
RN: 679809-58-6
UNII: 8NZ41MIK1O

Notes

  • Intended for use in the treatment of deep vein thrombosis; prophylaxis of ischemic complications of unstable angina and non-Q-wave myocardial infarction, and treatment of acute deep vein thrombosis.
  • Low-molecular-weight fragment of heparin, having a 4-enopyranosuronate sodium structure at the non-reducing end of the chain. It is prepared by depolymerization of the benzylic ester of porcine mucosal heparin. Therapeutically, it is used as an antithrombotic agent. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
