Bivalirudin Trifluoroacetate

Bivalirudin is a DTI that overcomes many limitations seen with indirect thrombin inhibitors. It is a short, synthetic peptide that is potent, highly specific, and a reversible inhibitor of thrombin. Bivalirudin inhibits both circulating and clot-bound thrombin, while also inhibiting thrombin-mediated platelet activation and aggregation. It has a quick onset of action and a short half-life, without binding to plasma proteins (other than thrombin) or red blood cells. Therefore it has a predictable antithrombotic response.

Bivalirudin is a direct thrombin inhibitor (DTI) frequently used for anticoagulation in the setting of invasive cardiology, particularly percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Bivalirudin has a unique pharmacologic profile: unlike other marketed DTIs, it undergoes predominant non-organ elimination (proteolysis), and has the shortest half-life (approximately 25 min). Its affinity for thrombin is intermediate between that of lepirudin (highest) and argatroban (lowest)--this helps explain why it interferes with functional clotting assays to an extent intermediate between that achieved by these two other DTIs.
