LMWH is derived from UFH to produce molecules that are one-third the molecular weight of UFH [27]. LMWHs and their smaller chains do not bind other plasma proteins as significantly as UFH thus making their pharmacokinetics much more predictable and thereby eliminating the need for routine monitoring in most situations [27]. The decreased binding of non-AT molecules also confers less risk of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) and less bone loss. 1) that confers upon LMWH the ability to inhibit thrombosis without producing significant anticoagulant activity [27– 29].

Using a blood pressure cuff inflated to 40 mmHg, a controlled puncture wound is made with a calibrated spring-loaded lancet triggered on the volar surface of the forearm, and the resulting wound is blotted every 30 s until bleeding stops. A prolonged bleeding time signals a functional platelet disorder such as von Willebrand disease (VWD), a vascular disorder such as vasculitis, or therapy with aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Because the bleeding time test is affected by non-platelet variables (intra-capillary pressure, skin thickness, size and depth of the wound), and it has inadequate predictive value, it has been largely discontinued.

A mutation in the factor V gene substitutes glutamine for arginine at position 506 of the factor V molecule (FV R506Q; FV Leiden). The arginine molecule is a normal cleavage site for APC; the substitution slows or resists APC hydrolysis. The resistant factor Va remains active and raises the production of thrombin, leading to thrombosis. The APC resistance clot-based assay is used to screen for FV Leiden. This is a PTT-based assay that incorporates factor V-depleted plasma and APC. A ratio of PTT results between an aliquot with or without APC determines if there is abnormal factor V activity (APC resistance).
