The present invention pertains to compounds that show a high affinity to Factor VIII and Factor VIII-like proteins, and their uses. The compounds are characterized by the general Formula B-Q-X, wherein B represents a dipeptide, tripeptide, or a peptidomimetic; Q represents a spacer and X represents an anchoring molecule; Q and X are optional. These compounds can be used for coating a solid support material. The resulting coated solid support material can be used for purifying Factor VIII by means of affinity chromatography methods. In addition, the compounds of the present invention may be used for stabilizing Factor VIII and for enhancing its activity. The present invention thus pertains also to methods for manufacturing a stabilized Factor VIII containing medicament of increased activity. The inventive compounds can furthermore be used in diagnostic kits and as research tools.
