Had a good friend who developed TTP and was dead in 2 weeks, had not obvious illness, thought he had gotten the flu, had history of late diagnosed Lymes disease, had recently started taking Chantix to quit smoking. Is there any corelation as to what would cause or contribute to the development of this disease and is there any new developments in the treament of the disease besided chemo and plasmaphoresis.
