Nadroparin is a low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) which, when bound to antithrombin III (ATIII), accelerates the inactivation of factor II and factor Xa. Nadroparin halts the coagulation pathway by inhibiting the activation of thrombin (factor IIa) by factor Xa. The amplification of the fibrin clotting cascade is stopped once factors Xa and IIa are inactivated. It is derived from porcine sources and has a mean molecular size of 5000 daltons. Low molecular weight heparins are less effective at inactivating factor IIa due to their shorter length compared to unfractionated heparin.


Nadroparin is used for prophylaxis of thromboembolic disorders and general surgery in orthopedic surgery, treatment of deep vein thrombosis, prevention of clotting during hemodialysis and treatment of unstable angina and non-Q wave myocardial infarction

Mechanism of Action

The mechanism of action for nadroparin is similar to all other LMWHs. Like all LMWHs, nadroparin has a pentasaccharide sequence which binds to ATIII, which potentiates the action of ATIII. This complex greatly accelerates the inactivation of factor Xa and factor IIa. As a result, the coagulation cascade is inhibited.


Absorption is linear. The bioavailability of nadroparin after subcutaneous administration is about 89%.
Nadroparin is metabolized in the liver.


The clearance of nadroparin is 21.4 +/- 7.0mL/min


Osteopenia with extended use, skin necrosis, thrombocytosis, severe immunologically-mediated thrombocytopenia, eosinophilia (rare), calcinosis rarely occurs at the injection site, severe bleeding, transient elevation of liver transaminases.
