The purpose of the study is to determine the Pharmacokinetics of Low Molecular Weight Heparin (LMWH) in Cancer patients, and compare it to the Pharmacokinetics of LMWH in Patients without cancer. We also intend to detect any correlation between heparanase blood and urine levels and the Pharmacokinetics of LMWH.
