Predicting patients' warfarin requirements

Lancet
P A RoutledgeM D Rawlins

Abstract

In 34 patients undergoing anticoagulant therapy with warfarin a close relationship has been observed between the logarithm of the 'Thrombotest' response to a loading dose (10 mg/day for three days) and the maintenance dose required to achieve an anticoagulant response of 8-12% (thrombo-test). This relationship appears to be close enough to enable maintenance dosages to be predicted.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.
