CAS 1197-18-8 Spot Removal Tranexamic Acid
Tranexamic acid is a synthetic derivative of the amino acid lysine. It is used to treat or prevent excessive blood loss during surgery and in various other medical conditions. It is anantifibrinolytic that competitively inhibits the activation of plasminogen to plasmin, by binding to specific sites of both plasminogen and plasmin, a molecule responsible for the degradation of fibrin, a protein that forms the framework of blood clots.
A large, international study was conducted on the use of tranexamic acid after childbirth to prevent hemorrhaging. The trial found that tranexamic acid significantly reduced the risk of death from hemorrhaging after childbirth.
2.Mouthwash for oral procedures
An antifibrinolytic mouthwash can be used for controlling bleeding after an oral procedure such as a tooth extraction. The tranexamic acid mouthwash is used prior to the procedure and immediately afterwards to prevent and reduce bleeding.
A topically applied tranexamic acid solution can help reduce nose bleeds.
Topically applied tranexamic acid has been shown to significantly improve the appearance of melasma.
