Thrombate III (Antithrombin III [Human]) is a form of protein found in the blood used to treat patients with hereditary antithrombin III deficiency in connection with surgical or obstetrical procedures or when they suffer from thromboembolism. Common side effects include dizziness, chest tightness or pain, nausea, foul taste in mouth, chills, cramps, shortness of breath, film over eye, light-headedness, bowel fullness, hives, fever, and oozing and blood blister formation.
