Answer

Anticoagulants, Hematologic

Anticoagulants inhibit the formation of blood clots resulting from blood disorders.

Heparin

Heparin augments the activity of antithrombin III and prevents the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin. It does not actively lyse, but it can inhibit further thrombogenesis. Heparin prevents the reaccumulation of clots after spontaneous fibrinolysis.
