BI 655064 will be administered subcutaneously once weekly in patients with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) for up to 12 weeks.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether IGIV3I 10% Grifols is effective in the treatment of immune thrombocytopenic purpura.
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).
The aim of this study is to determine histological immunological parameters, sought on splenectomy pieces that may explain the failure or success of splenectomy in patients with ITP who ha...
Prospective Psychometric Evaluation Study of a Patient-reported Outcomes (PRO) Instrument for Congenital Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (cTTP, Upshaw-Schulman Syndrome [USS], Hereditary Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura [hTTP]
The purpose of this study is to assess the psychometric properties of a recently developed congenital thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (cTTP)-specific patient-reported outcomes (PRO) in...
The association of the IL-10 gene polymorphism with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP, also called idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura) susceptibility has been investigated in several studies; howe...
For many years after its first description in 1924 thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura was an intriguing puzzle for clinicians and researchers, not only for its unique pathology, perplexing changes in...
As medical therapy improves, splenectomy has been relegated to third- or fourth-line therapy for immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) in many hematologic practices. However, these medications have we...
Minimal invasive procedures has become increasingly popular during the last decades. The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic splenectomy in patie...
Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is a bleeding disorder characterized by low platelet counts in peripheral blood, impairment of thrombopoiesis in bone marrow, and risk of mild to severe bleedings...
Any form of purpura in which the PLATELET COUNT is decreased. Many forms are thought to be caused by immunological mechanisms.
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.
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.
An acquired, congenital, or familial disorder caused by PLATELET AGGREGATION with THROMBOSIS in terminal arterioles and capillaries. Clinical features include THROMBOCYTOPENIA; HEMOLYTIC ANEMIA; AZOTEMIA; FEVER; and thrombotic microangiopathy. The classical form also includes neurological symptoms and end-organ damage, such as RENAL FAILURE.
