Aminocaproic acid

Also known as: ε-aminocaproic acid ε-Ahx 6-aminohexanoic acid

Description

Aminocaproic acid is 6-aminohexanoic acid, which acts as an inhibitor of fibrinolysis. The fibrinolysis-inhibitory effects of aminocaproic acid appear to be exerted principally via inhibition of plasminogen activators and to a lesser degree through antiplasmin activity.
