Liver cirrhosis is the end stage of chronic liver disease, but no definitive pharmacological treatment is currently available. It has been reported that thrombopoietin (TPO) promotes liver regeneration and improves liver cirrhosis by increasing platelet count. We have shown the direct effect of platelet transfusion on the improvement of liver function in patients with chronic liver disease. However, platelet transfusion often causes adverse events, such as platelet transfusion refractoriness and pruritus. Therefore, we conducted an exploratory clinical trial and administered eltrombopag, an orally bioavailable, small-molecule, non-peptide TPO receptor agonist that has been approved for the treatment of chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura...

BACKGROUND: Megakaryocytic cell maturation involves polyploidization, and megakaryocyte (MK) ploidy correlates with their maturation and platelet production. Retardation of MK maturation is closely associated with poor MK engraftment after cord blood transplantation and neonatal thrombocytopenia. Despite the high prevalence of thrombocytopenia in a range of setting that affect infants to adults, there are still very limited modalities of treatment. METHODS: Human CD34(+) cells were isolated from cord blood or bone marrow samples acquired from consenting patients...

The objective of our study is to present two cases showing the effects of traditional Korean herbal medicines based on traditional Korean medicine (TKM) for the treatment of immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). One patient showed no response to treatment with steroids and an immunosuppressive agent. Moreover, liver toxicity and side effects of steroids were evident. However, after he ceased conventional treatment and started to take an herbal medicine, his liver function normalized and the steroid side effects resolved...

The acquired form of idiopathic thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) is an autoimmune disease, in which the underlying ADAMTS13-deficiency is caused by inhibitory autoantibodies against the protease. Human leukocyte antigens (HLA), responsible for antigen presentation, play an important role in the development of antibodies. The loci coding HLA DR and DQ molecules are inherited in linkage as haplotypes. The c.1858C>T polymorphism of the PTPN22 gene, which codes a protein tyrosine phosphatase important in lymphocyte activation, predisposes to a number of autoimmune diseases...

Despite the increased worldwide awareness, over the last decade, of the platelet-type von Willebrand Disease (PT-VWD), many uncertainties remain around this rare platelet bleeding disorder. This report aims to correctly identify and study the phenotype of new patients and highlights the diagnostic and therapeutic challenges this disease remains to pose. We describe four PT-VWD cases confirmed by genetic analysis in which either the diagnosis and/or the treatment posed challenge. We provide the details of the clinical presentation, laboratory analysis, and the treatment and the responses in each case...

GATA3 and T-box (T-bet) expressed in T-cells are transcriptional factors that play a critical role in development of Th2 and Th1 immunity respectively. GATA3 is expressed during Th2 differentiation and T-bet is expressed exclusively in Th1 cells. Thus, a balance between GATA3 and T-bet is believed to control Th2/Th1 polarization. Therefore, the high expression of T-bet and low expression of GATA3 indicate the existence of Th1 polarization in children with acute immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). This might be related to the regulation of T-bet and GATA3...

BACKGROUND: The most common complication of coronary artery perforation, a rare complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), is hemopericardium with cardiac tamponade. However, localized extra-coronary bleeding can lead to epicardial hematoma, which is a rare phenomenon. We report the case of an unusual delayed presentation of post-PCI hematoma with unrecognized guidewire perforation. CASE PRESENTATION: A 70-year-old man with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and a history of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) underwent PCI...

The study aimed to investigate the long-term outcomes of laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) in Chinese patients with chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). This was a retrospective analysis of 114 patients with ITP who underwent LS from 2001 to 2013. Patients were classified according to response at last contact: complete response (CR), partial response (PR), and no response (NR). Patients with CR had the highest platelet levels and patients with NR had the lowest. A correlation was observed between postoperative peak platelet count and platelet count on 2-month postoperative (r=0...

OBJECTIVE: To identify the hematological manifestations and its association with serum ferritin levels in SLE patients from Western India. METHODS: Ninety clinically diagnosed SLE patients fulfilling ACR criteria were included. Disease activity was assessed at the time of evaluation using Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index (SLEDAI). Sera were tested for serum ferritin levels by ELISA (Calbiotech, USA). Autoantibodies such as ANA, anti-dsDNA by indirect immunofluorescence test (IFA- Bio-Rad, USA) and anti-cardiolipin antibodies (ACA) to IgG and IgM isotypes and Anti-β2 GP antibodies to IgG and IgM isotypes were detected by ELISA using commercially available kits (Euroimmun, Lubeck, Germany)...

BACKGROUND: Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is a rare thrombotic microangiopathy, related to a severe ADAMTS13 deficiency (a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thromboSpondin type 1 repeats, member 13; activity <10% of normal). Childhood-onset thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is very rare and initially often misdiagnosed, especially when ADAMTS13 deficiency is acquired (ie, not linked to inherited mutations of the ADAMTS13 gene). We aimed to investigate initial presentation, management, and outcome of acquired thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura in children...

HIV complicates the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to idiopathic thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), prompting debate in the literature regarding the benefit of plasma exchange versus simple plasma infusion. Herein we present a case of HIV-TTP, initially treated conservatively with plasma infusion but because of progressive neurologic decline, required urgent plasma exchange for resolution of hematologic derangements and neurologic sequelae. Based on the available literature, there appears to be a spectrum of HIV-associated TTP disorders...

Acquired thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is primarily caused by deficiency of plasma ADAMTS13 activity resulting from autoantibodies against ADAMTS13. However, ADAMTS13 deficiency alone is often not sufficient to cause acute thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. Infections or systemic inflammation may precede acute bursts of the disease but the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood. Here, 52 patients with acquired idiopathic thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura and 30 blood donor controls were recruited for the study...

An 80-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of severe thrombocytopenia. He was diagnosed with idiopathic thrombocytopenia, and prednisolone together with eltrombopag was started, leading to significant improvement of platelet counts. Four years later, there was a prominent increase of peripheral blood monocytes, which was accompanied by recurrence of thrombocytopenia. Bone marrow aspirates and serum electrophoresis revealed coexistence of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) and multiple myeloma (MM)...

Asplenic patients are at increased risk for sepsis and fulminant infection. Sepsis in these patients is typically secondary to encapsulated bacteria, with Streptococcus pneumoniae being the most frequent pathogen. Rare complications of severe sepsis include purpura fulminans and bilateral adrenal hemorrhage (Waterhouse-Friderichsen syndrome). We present the case of a 36-year-old woman, healthy except for splenectomy years prior for idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura treatment, who presented with fever. Upon presentation to our hospital, three hours after symptoms onset, she had purpura fulminans and shock...
