Axiostat prevents loss of blood by providing an active mechanical barrier to the bleeding site. Axiostat is effective with patients on blood thinners.
Axiostat is based on the principle of mucoadhesion and charge-based adhesion. Axiostat, based on Protonated Bioadhesive Technology (PBT), has designed to be polycationic in nature while blood cells are anionic in nature. When Axiostat is applied on the affected site with pressure, the charge-based adhesion leads to the formation of a strong platelet plug that serves as a barrier to the surgical site, preventing blood from leaking out
