Antithrombin is a protein in our blood stream, which functions as a naturally occurring mild
blood thinner. It is like a police protein that prevents us from clotting too much. It blocks our blood clotting mechanism by inactivating the clotting protein “thrombin”. It is, therefore, called “anti-thrombin”. While antithrombin III was the original name given to this protein, the correct name now is just antithrombin, with the “III” dropped.
