Bemiparin sodium is a low molecular weight heparin obtained by depolymerisation of heparin Na from porcine intestinal mucosa. Its anti-Xa activity ranges from 80-120 anti-Xa IU/mg and its anti-IIa activity ranges from 5-20 anti-IIa IU/mg, respectively. Without raising the risk of bleeding, its high anti-Xa/IIa ratio can lead to a higher antithrombotic effect.
