Lepirudin is an anticoagulant that functions as a direct thrombin inhibitor.  Brand name: Refludan, Generic: Lepirudin rDNA for injection.  Lepirudin is a recombinant hirudin[1] derived from yeast cells. It is almost identical to hirudin extracted from Hirudo medicinalis.Lepirudin may be used as an anticoagulant when heparins (unfractionated or low-molecular-weight) are contraindicated because of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia.

Argatroban is a thrombin inhibitor. It is for thrombosis in patients with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT). Because of its hepatic metabolism, it may be used in patients with renal dysfunction. (This is in contrast to lepirudin, a direct thrombin inhibitor that is primarily renally cleared). Argatroban is used as an anticoagulant in individuals with thrombosis and heparin induced thrombocytopenia. Often these individuals require long term anticoagulation.
