Ning Tang writes, Dear George, In China, a categary of hemostatic agents from snake venom named "Haemocoagulase" are widely used, basically they are the generic drugs of Reptilase®, which is produced by a Swiss company. We find that intravenous injection of this drug can cause severe hyperfibrinolysis and hypofibrinogenemia. It seems that Reptilase has been withdrawm from many western countries, do you know the reason? Whether is it due to some side effects? Looking forward to your reply.
