Q: How Heparin and warfarin effect Anti-Thrombin (AT) activity?

Answer: Heparin, particularly unfractionated, can lower AT activity and may lead to undue replacement of AT even if not required. On the other hand, Warfarin may increase AT activity and may show normal AT level in patients with AT deficiency.
