Novel Therapeutic Approaches May Transform Treatment and Improve Patient Outcomes in Several Platelet Disorders
Date:12/6/2008

study was the percentage of patients with Grade 2 or higher bleeding, calculated using the WHO Bleeding Scale. Grade 2 bleeding is clinically significant bleeding that does not require a red blood cell transfusion. Grade 2 or higher bleeding occurred in 71 percent of patients in the low-dose arm, 69 percent in the medium-dose arm, and 70 percent in the high-dose arm. Grade 3 or higher bleeding, which generally does require treatment by red blood cell transfusion, was seen in 12 percent of patients in the low-dose arm, 9 percent in the medium-dose arm, and 10 percent in the high-dose arm. Grade 4 bleeding, the most serious, was seen in 3 percent, 2 percent, and 2 percent of patients in the low-dose, medium-dose, and high-dose arms, respectively. The median number of red blood cell transfusions (usually given for anemia) was four in each treatment arm. Treatment dose did not affect the frequency of any bleeding grade in any of the four patient groups.

A Therapeutic Platelet Transfusion Strategy Without Routine Prophylactic Transfusion is Feasible and Safe and Reduces Platelet Transfusion Numbers Significantly: Preliminary Analysis of a Randomized Study in Patients After High-DoseChemotherapyand Autologous Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation [Abstract#286]

Hannes Wandt, MD, Klinikum Nuremberg Nord, Nuremberg, Germany

This is the first worldwide randomized study showing that one-quarter to one-third of all platelet transfusions were given unnecessarily in the past and can be reduced in the future without any harm to patients following high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation, according to Dr. Wandt.

This multicenter, randomized trial found that the development of major
