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

groups, platelet counts never exceeded 30,000 microliters in the placebo group. This is in contrast to median platelet counts rising to 36,000 microliters in the eltrombopag group after one week of treatment and ranging from 52,000 to 91,000 microliters for the remainder of the study. Median platelet counts returned to baseline levels two weeks after stopping eltrombopag.

Significantly fewer patients treated with eltrombopag experienced any bleeding or clinically significant bleeding throughout the study as compared with those in the placebo arm. Additionally, more patients in the eltrombopag arm were able to stop or reduce other ITP medication and required less rescue therapy compared with those in the placebo group. Overall incidence of adverse events was similar in both treatment groups and was mostly mild to moderate.

The study authors and press program moderator will be available for interviews after the press conference or by telephone. Additional press briefings will take place throughout the meeting on combating blood clots, treatment advances in leukemia and lymphoma, improvements in stem cell therapies, and advances in screening and treatment for sickle cell disease.

The American Society of Hematology (www.hematology.org) is the world's largest professional society concerned with the causes and treatment of blood disorders. Its mission is to further the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders affecting blood, bone marrow, and the immunologic, hemostatic, and vascular systems, by promoting research, clinical care, education, training, and advocacy in hematology. In September, ASH launched Blood: The Vital Connection
