The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of multiple doses of Staphylococcal protein A (PRTX-100) in adult patients with Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP). The pharmacokinetics, immunogenicity and pharmacodynamics will also be studied.
Patients will be enrolled into 1 of 3 dose groups and receive 4 weekly IV doses of PRTX-100. A Safety Monitoring Committee will review safety data through Day 28 for the first 5 patients in a dose group before escalation to the next higher dose level. Patients will be followed for 8 weeks after dosing for safety, PK, immunogenicity and effect on platelet count(pharmacodynamics).
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This study is the second human clinical study with PRTX-100. It is designed to assess the safety of a single intravenous (IV) dose of PRTX-100, as well as, how the drug is eliminated from...
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 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 bod...
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...
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.
Ticagrelor, a new type of P2Y12 receptor antagonist, has been highly recommended to be used in acute coronary syndrome by the latest guideline, but its side effects are not well-known. We seek to illu...
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.
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...
