Desmopressin (1-deamino-8-D-arginine vasopressin) is a synthetic analogue of the antidiuretic hormone L-arginine vasopressin. Because it can raise circulating levels of factor VIII and von Willebrand factor, desmopressin is used for nontransfusional treatment of mild and moderate hemophilia and von Willebrand disease. Desmopressin also shortens the prolonged skin bleeding time in patients suffering from von Willebrand disease and is given to prevent or stop excessive bleeding in such conditions.

Abstract

Desmopressin (1-deamino-8-D-arginine vasopressin) is a synthetic analogue of the antidiuretic hormone L-arginine vasopressin. Because it can raise circulating levels of factor VIII and von Willebrand factor, desmopressin is used for nontransfusional treatment of mild and moderate hemophilia and von Willebrand disease. Desmopressin also shortens the prolonged skin bleeding time in patients suffering from von Willebrand disease and is given to prevent or stop excessive bleeding in such conditions.
