Abstract: Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases have become one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the world. Thrombosis is a major cause. Conventional antithrombotic therapy comprises heparin, warfarin, and so on. All these agents have a potential bleeding risk and a significant adverse reaction of thrombocytopenia. Factor Xa, presented at the juncture of the intrinsic and the extrinsic pathways, plays a pivotal role in the blood coagulation cascade, and per molecule produces thrombin approximately 1000 molecules. Factor Xa inhibitors provide a new direction for the development of anticoagnlant drugs. Betrixaban is an oral direct factor Xa inhibitor, and has the lowest renal excretion. In a series of researches, betrixaban shows a good prospect. The drug situation, background, route of synthesis, pharmacological action and clinical trials researches of betrixaban are reviewed in this paper.
