Bemiparin is an antithrombotic and belongs to the group of low molecular weight heparins (LMWH).[1]

Like semuloparin, bemiparin is classified as an ultra-LMWH because of its low molecular mass of 3600 Daltons on average.[2] (Enoxaparin has 4500 Daltons.) These heparins have lower anti-thrombin activity than classical LMWHs and act mainly on factor Xa, reducing the risk of bleeding.[3]
