This is a randomized, open-label, five-period, balanced crossover study conducted in approximately 40 healthy adult subjects enrolled at one study center in the USA. Subjects receive five eltrombopag treatments: tablet fasted, Powder for Oral Suspension (PfOS) fasted, PfOS with a high calcium meal, PfOS 2 hours prior to a high calcium meal, and PfOS 2 hours after a high calcium meal, and each treatment is a single 25 mg dose. There is a 10 to 14 day washout between periods, and between the last dose of study drug and the follow-up visit. During each treatment period, subjects undergo serial PK sampling over 72 hours for measurement of plasma eltrombopag concentrations. Safety is assessed by vital signs, clinical safety laboratory assessments, and adverse events reporting.

An open-label, dose-adjustment extension study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of eltrombopag for treatment of subjects with ITP who have previously been enrolled in the eltrombopag tr...
The purpose of this study is to further evaluate the effects that eltrombopag has on platelets in subjects with chronic ITP. Eltrombopag is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FD...
An open-label, dose-adjustment, extension study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of eltrombopag for the treatment of subjects with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) who have pre...
This is a single-center, prospective, controlled study with one eltrombopag treatment group and 2 control groups, one on standard steroid treatment, and another one untreated. The aim of ...
Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an autoimmune disease characterized by antibody-mediated platelet destruction. The complex pathogenesis of ITP with multiple challenges to immu...
The thrombopoietin receptor agonists (TPO-RAs), romiplostim and eltrombopag, stimulate megakaryopoiesis and thereby increase platelet counts. Both drugs are increasingly used in the treatment of immun...
In this phase 2 study, patients with solid tumors receiving gemcitabine monotherapy or gemcitabine plus cisplatin/carboplatin were randomized 2:1 to eltrombopag 100 mg (n = 52) or placebo (n = 23...
Pure red cell aplasia (PRCS) is a well-recognized complication after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Many therapeutic options are available to treat this condition, includin...
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...
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
