10 months ago my plateletts started to drop from 190 k down to as low as 52K. I experience 30K in 9 day periods. I have high cardiolypins but no clotting so they think it is probably auto immune based. I am wondering if there is any hope in these situations or do the antibodies eventaully win. They have not started any treatment yet. Most of what I read on the net is negative.

I am an SBB student-specialist in blood banking, here at the American Red Cross Blood Services in Pomona Ca. I am looking for information on drug induced thrombocytopenia. Have you done much research in this area, and if so, do you have any information that I may use. I am interested in doing a project involving detection of drug induced thrombocytopenia utilizing flow cytometry. Thank you. Sara Shaw MT(ASCP)

I have read all the info on studies with patients, is there a way updates can be gotten from the patients? Or new research info for TTP which I have and have gone through plasma exchanges, Rituxum, now vitchristine and maybe removing my spleen. It seen as if my body is not accepting any of the treatments. If you have anything you can share with me I would appreciate it.
