Our daughter is 13 and has chronic severe ITP. She has been through WinRoh, IVIG, rituximab, methypred (IV0 high doses of pred, and a spleenectomy last week. The spleenectomy does not appear ot be successful in treating her ITP. Do you know anything about noni fruit and selenium? I spoke with a woman that has had very good result with those two items. Can they be harmful? It is very difficult to find any good information on side effects or results of any sort on alternative treatments especially. I appreciate your time. Becky

I attended the suppot group meeting in Columbus Ohio and my mother and I got to meet Dr. Georg finally. Dr. Cataland speaks so highly of him and all of the information that her shared was very informative. Thank you!

I am thankful to find this website! a few days ago I went to the ER because of acute illness, during which the thrombocytopenia was diagnosed. I meet with the consult oncologist tomorrow; I feel more knowledgeable now about the wide range of possibilities. I have been complaining of symptoms in increasing severity over the last few months. QUESTION: I had my H1N1 vaccine on Jan 14. SOME EMEDICINE ARTICLES (link) INDICATE THAT VACCINATIONS CAN PRECIPITATE AN ACUTE EPISODE, and I wonder if you have more information on this? Thank you.

I attended the TTP conference in Columbus, Ohio. I found it very informative and interesting. I was excited to meet Dr George, Dr. Cataland and Dr. Wu. I am looking forward to the next one in June.
