Factor Xa inhibitors Fondaparinux is the only factor Xa drug that is currently available, although others are being evaluated [16,17]. This agent is an indirect inhibitor of factor Xa and is completely absorbed after subcutaneous administration. The half-life of fondaparinux is approximately 17 hours, which makes once-daily dosing possible. The fifth OASIS (Organization to Assess Strategies in Acute Ischemic Syndromes) trial studied 20,078 patients with non-ST-elevation ACS . Patients were randomized to either fondaparinux or enoxaparin.
