RESUMO

: Evaluate the in-vitro effect of Mentha crispa extract on blood coagulation, compare the conventional coagulometric tests with thrombin generation test (TGT), and study the qualitative micromolecular composition of M. crispa. Extract of M. crispa was incubated with plasma and used in the coagulometric tests: prothrombin and activated partial thromboplastin times, fibrinogen, and TGT. A phytochemical prospection was performed to evaluate the chemical composition of this extract. The extract was efficient in prolonging prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time, and reducing fibrinogen levels and TGT parameters, indicating that the extract of M. crispa inhibited the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways of blood coagulation. The results obtained in TGT are in agreement with the results of conventional coagulometric tests and the in-vitro anticoagulant activity of M. crispa suggests that its use by patients using oral anticoagulants deserves caution.
