Mechanism Of Action Like phenindione, to which it is related chemically, anisindione exercises its therapeutic action by reducing the prothrombin activity of the blood. By inhibiting the vitamin K–mediated gamma-carboxylation of precursor proteins, the formation of active procoagulation factors II, VII, IX, and X, as well as the anticoagulant proteins C and S is prevented. Anisindione has no direct thrombolytic effect and does not reverse ischemic tissue damage, although it may limit extension of existing thrombi and prevent secondary thromboembolic complications.
