(un agent) thrombolytique or thrombolytique


Explanation:
Clot-buster
> clot:
technical term: un thrombus - popular term: caillot (de sang)
> buster: here as 'dissolvant' / dissolution d'un caillot de sang

Hence: (un agent) thrombolytique or 'thrombolytique' simplement

The following will be very helpful when translating medical texts:

www.tele3.net/terminologie/cardio/cardio.htm for a definition of a clot-buster (thrombolytique)

http://allserv.rug.ac.be/~rvdstick/eugloss/EN/lijstb.html (many medical terms translated in several languages)

or even:

http://eurodic.ip.lu:8086//cgi-bin/edicbin/expert.pl for all kinds of terms in many languages, including translations of 'clot' etc
