DescriptionTranexamic acid is a synthetic derivative of [lysine] used as an antifibrinolytic in the treatment and prevention of major bleeding. It possesses a similar mechanism of action to [aminocaproic acid] but is approximately 10-fold more potent.[L31883] It was first patented in 1957[A230108] and received its initial US approval in 1986.[L31858]
