Drug: Ilomedin and Integrilin
Drug: low molecular weight heparin.
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in platelet count from baseline to 72 hours post treatment [ Time Frame: 11 bloodsamples over 7 days ]
    Will be from pre-study drug administration until 7 days

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Severe bleeding (intracranial or clinical bleeding with the use of 3 RBC units or more) (KyperSept trial) [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
    If longer in the ICU ward followed until discharged.

  • Days of vasopressor, ventilator and renal replacement therapy and use of blood product (in ICU) after randomization [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
    Followed longer if not discharged from the ICU at day 7
