Biochem/physiol Actions

Lysine analog. Promotes rapid dissociation of plasmin, thereby inhibiting the activation of plasminogen and subsequent fibrinolysis. Reported to inhibit plasminogen binding to activated platelets. An early report indicated that it inhibits the activation of the first component of the complement system. Binds and inactivates Carboxypeptidase B.

The present work reports covalent functionalization of single-walled carbon nanotubes (f-SWNTs) to introduce hydrophilicity to the otherwise amphiphobic nanotubes. The charge and spacer length of the functional moiety were varied by using quaternized ethylene diamine, 6-aminocaproate, quaternized (ethylenedioxy)bis(ethylamine), and a

Understanding the clinical pharmacology of the antifibrinolytic epsilon-aminocaproic acid (EACA) is necessary for rational drug administration in children. The aim of this study is to determine the pharmacokinetics (PKs) of EACA in infants aged 6-24 months undergoing craniofacial reconstruction surgery.
