EACA in Hemophilia Mechanism of Action

# Epsilon aminocaproic acid (EACA) is one of the agents useful in the treatment of haemophilia A. Mechanism of action of EACA is:
A. It is rich in factor VIII, which is deficient in hemophilia
B. Antifibrinolytic activity
C. It accelerates the coagulation process which is delayed in hemophilia
D.By unknown mechanism

The correct answer is B. Antifibrinolytic activity.

The main action of epsilon aminocaproic acid (EACA) is by its antifibrinolytic activity.

EACA is replaced by tranexamic acid, because of its more potent and longer acting properties and less side effects.
