Global Heparin Market 2016-2020 - New Market Report

Fast Market Research announces the availability of the new TechNavio report, "Global Heparin Market 2016-2020", on their comprehensive research portal


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/31/2016 -- Heparin, a disaccharide anticoagulant or blood thinner, prevents the formation of blood clots. It is produced in the body by basophils and mast cells. It is stored within mast cells and secreted at the injury site. Though it has no effect on already formed clots, it enables the body's natural clot lysis mechanisms to dissolve clots. It can also be taken from outside as a drug. Heparin can be derived from natural sources such as pig intestine and bovine lungs.
Heparin is divided into two types based on the fractionation process. Both types have medical use, with the selection done based on preference for a particular condition.

-UFH: It is directly obtained from natural sources, without undergoing any fractionation.
-LMWH: It is derived by depolymerizing UFH. The pharmacodynamics properties of LMWH are more predictable when compared to UFH.
