The drug is available in the form of pills for oral reception. The pills are coated with a film coating. The drug is an anticoagulant of direct action. Pharmacological effects include inhibition of FXa activity. The result of this impact is the change in the values of indicators of blood coagulation system that extends prothrombin time. The changes in such indicators in the course of therapy are individual for each patient. The intensity and percentage change of anti-FXa activity is directly proportional to the increase in the concentration of apixaban in the patient’s blood plasma.
