This is a Phase 2, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-ranging, parallel-group study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of S-888711 in the treatment of subjects with immune thrombocytopenia. Eligible subjects will be randomized into one of four treatment groups to receive S-888711 0.5 mg, 0.75 mg, or 1.0 mg or placebo.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

The primary objective of the study is to check if an subcutaneous (sc) infusion of UCB7665 is safe and tolerated in subjects with primary immune thrombocytopenia.
Progranulin (PGRN) is emerging as a critical immune mediator involved in a variety of autoimmune disorders. However, its role in immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) remains unclear.
Pipercillin-tazobactam is a frequently used antibiotic that has a broad spectrum of antibacterial activity. The development of severe thrombocytopenia following the use of piperacillin-tazobactam is u...
Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an immune-mediated disease; it has been reported to be associated with several diseases. The data on ITP in patients with hepatitis B, tuberculosis, or thyroid disease...
In this report, we present a young infant with multisystem Langerhans cell histiocytosis, who after cladribine and cytarabine salvage treatment developed immune thrombocytopenia (IT). On review of the...
The aim of this work was to investigate the influence of T lymphocyte subsets and platelet-specific autoantibodies on immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) with dexamethasone therapy.
An antihelminthic drug that has been tried experimentally in rheumatic disorders where it apparently restores the immune response by increasing macrophage chemotaxis and T-lymphocyte function. Paradoxically, this immune enhancement appears to be beneficial in rheumatoid arthritis where dermatitis, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia, and nausea and vomiting have been reported as side effects. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1991, p435-6)
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.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
Regeneration of normal immune function after immune depleting procedures or infections (e.g., HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION). Delayed and incomplete reconstitution of the ADAPTIVE IMMUNE system in particular involving T-CELLS is associated with increase or relapse of infection.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
