Omeros Licenses Novel Antifibrinolytic Agents
Date:1/5/2011

d explanation is lack of specificity of Trasylol®.

TXA and EACA are lysine analogs that function as competitive inhibitors of plasminogen activation and, at much higher concentrations, noncompetitive inhibitors of plasmin.  These agents are considered to be safer but less effective than Trasylol®. While TXA is approximately 10 times more potent than EACA, it is associated with a fourfold increase over EACA in the risk of seizures.  Further, a study demonstrated that patients administered TXA required more transfusion product than patients who were administered Trasylol®, resulting in significantly higher overall transfusion-related costs for patients treated with the less expensive, generic agent TXA.  

Omeros' proprietary antifibrinolytic agents are highly selective inhibitors of plasmin, the enzyme responsible for fibrinolysis and dissolving blood clots, while avoiding significant inhibition of Factor XIa and kallikrein. This selectivity could provide more effective bleeding control with fewer side effects. Additionally, as a human protein derivative, these agents are expected to reduce the potential for immunological side effects.

About Omeros' Antifibrinolytic Program

Omeros is developing a series of novel antifibrinolytic agents for the control of blood loss during surgery or resulting from trauma. Omeros' agents are designed to selectively inhibit plasmin, the enzyme responsible for fibrinolysis and dissolving blood clots, while avoiding significant inhibition of Factor XIa and kallikrein, important regulators of the coagulation cascade. These agents could provide a superior replacement for the antifibrinolytic agents Trasylol® (aprotinin), tranexamic acid and epsilon aminocaproic acid. The selectivity of Omeros' agents may provide more effective bleeding control with fewer side effects. Additionally, as a human protein derivative, these agents are expected to reduce the potential for immuno
