This study is designed to investigate the safety of a single infusion of GMA161 in patients with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, as well as, the way the drug enters and leaves the body. In addition, throughout the study, platelet counts and other blood cell numbers will be measured. NOTE: A decision was made to terminate this study in June 2008 due to low enrollment.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This single arm study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of MabThera monotherapy in patients with refractory, relapsing or chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Patients wi...
This study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of single agent Doxil in the treatment of patients with refractory ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura).
Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) is an autoimmune bleeding disorder characterised by isolated low platelet counts. The aim of treating patients with ITP is to increase the platele...
Assessment of quality of life of patient with chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura according to the type of treatment
BI 655064 will be administered subcutaneously once weekly in patients with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) for up to 12 weeks.
Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) is classically characterized by a transient or persistent decrease of platelet count. Mortality is higher in the ITP population than the general population, w...
Untreated human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can be complicated by opportunistic infections, including disseminated histoplasmosis (DH). Although endemic to portions of the United States and usually b...
Patients suffering from congenital thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (cTTP) have a deficiency in ADAMTS13 due to mutations in their ADAMTS13 gene.
Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) is caused by the absence of ADAMTS13 activity. Thrombocytopenia is presumably related to the formation of microthrombi rich in von Willebrand Factor (VWF) and...
Acquired thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (aTTP) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by absent ADAMTS13 activity and presence of anti-ADAMTS13 autoantibodies. Recently it was shown that ADAMTS1...
Any form of purpura in which the PLATELET COUNT is decreased. Many forms are thought to be caused by immunological mechanisms.
Thrombocytopenia occurring in the absence of toxic exposure or a disease associated with decreased platelets. It is mediated by immune mechanisms, in most cases IMMUNOGLOBULIN G autoantibodies which attach to platelets and subsequently undergo destruction by macrophages. The disease is seen in acute (affecting children) and chronic (adult) forms.
Immunoglobulin preparations used in intravenous infusion, containing primarily IMMUNOGLOBULIN G. They are used to treat a variety of diseases associated with decreased or abnormal immunoglobulin levels including pediatric AIDS; primary HYPERGAMMAGLOBULINEMIA; SCID; CYTOMEGALOVIRUS infections in transplant recipients, LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA, CHRONIC; Kawasaki syndrome, infection in neonates, and IDIOPATHIC THROMBOCYTOPENIC PURPURA.
A systemic non-thrombocytopenic purpura caused by HYPERSENSITIVITY VASCULITIS and deposition of IGA-containing IMMUNE COMPLEXES within the blood vessels throughout the body, including those in the kidney (KIDNEY GLOMERULUS). Clinical symptoms include URTICARIA; ERYTHEMA; ARTHRITIS; GASTROINTESTINAL HEMORRHAGE; and renal involvement. Most cases are seen in children after acute upper respiratory infections.
An ADAMTS protease that contains eight thrombospondin (TS) motifs. It cleaves VON WILLEBRAND FACTOR to control vWF-mediated THROMBOSIS. Mutations in the ADAMTS13 gene have been identified in familial cases of PURPURA, THROMBOTIC THROMBOCYTOPENIC and defects in ADAMTS13 activity are associated with MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; BRAIN ISCHEMIA; PRE-ECLAMPSIA; and MALARIA.
