ITP

Also known as

Primary immune thrombocytopenia (ITP)

Primary immune thrombocytopenia (also known as idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, or ITP), is an autoimmune bleeding disorder. It is caused by low levels of platelets, which are involved in clotting and are important for preventing and stopping bleeding. Some patients have symptoms such as bleeding under the skin, nosebleeds, and, rarely, dangerous bleeding in the GI system or in the brain. ITP can affect children and adults, and there are several treatment options available. There is a subset of ITP patients who do not respond well to existing treatments.

The latest on our research

We have four physician experts signed on to work with AllStripes on ITP and we are currently working with them to determine the best topic for an upcoming research project. We’re beginning recruitment for the ITP program now, and have some exciting milestones coming up. Join the program today to stay updated and to contribute to research!
