I just lost my Mother to TTP. She lived 3 years with it. I would love to have you find why this happens. I due believe that my Mother's was caused by a percription she was taking. My Mother was to young for this and I am always reading up on TTP.

Hey I think this is a really good site for info on TTP. I am currently in my senior high school year and I need to write an essay on TTP for school. I was hoping that you could help me. Please contact me if you want to help me. I am looking for raw data on TTP that I could analyse. As a student I don't have any access to this and I hope this registry could help me. I am so interested in TTP, because my little sister died last year in October when she was four due to TTP. Its still a big shock to me that she's dead, and I was hoping this Essay will help me overcome my sorrow. So please, if you think it would be possible for me to get some raw data, please contact me. I really don't want to change my topic, and I would have to, if I can't get any data to analyse. Since this is just a high school essay, I will probably won't be writing any deep scientific observations nor publish anything. I just need to find some kind of correlation or so, so that I can put up a thesis. Thanks for your help. Best Greetings, Mila Baer

Please send me the updated list of the Foods and drugs that induce ITP. I was doing well on 5mgm every other day but I had to take Neurontin and Klononpin several months later my platelets count dropped to 20,000. What can I take as anti axiety without lowering my platelets? Thanks Magda

Dear Dr George and Team I'm a 44 year old female and September 2005 I was diagnosed with TTP, with platelet count of 8 and hemogl dropped to 50. December of 2006 I was back in the ER that confirmed a relapsed. Today, I'm still on 10 mg prednisone and 100 mg of Imuran, soon the prednisone will be reduced and hopefully Imuran will do it's job. I also have a mixed connective tissue disease, and hypothyroid. I've started a fundraiser to raise funds and awareness for TTP, I would like to expand and start a support group as well start a national organization is there anyone I can speak to that can be role model for starting a ttp support group. Hope to hear from you
