Advances in the Management of Chronic Immune Thrombocytopenia in Adults
Certified CME/CNE Activity - Mini Modules
Chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is one of the most common causes of thrombocytopenia in adults. Diagnosis of ITP remains one of exclusion, and differential diagnosis with secondary forms is crucial to exclude other forms of thrombocytopenia, which may require a different therapeutic approach. Furthermore, chronic symptomatic ITP necessitates second-line treatments based on highly individualized considerations. Advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis have led to novel therapeutic targets, such as the thrombopoietin receptor agonists to aid in this personalized approach.

These educational Mini Modules will outline recent data on current and emerging treatment options for chronic ITP, including FcRn and spleen tyrosine kinase inhibitors. Topics will also include epidemiology; clinical manifestation (including bleeding, fatigue and impaired health-related quality of life); the importance of a comprehensive and timely diagnostic workup of thrombocytopenia; and considerations for making individualized treatment choices (including dosing and toxicities).
