Survey of Non-Traditional Treatments of ITP

Introduction

From August, 2001 through December, 2001, we collected 916 responses to our Survey of Non-traditional Treatments of ITP.  This survey was created by James Bussel, MD of the Weill Medical Center of Cornell University and the staff of the Platelet Disorder Support Association and placed on this web site to gather replies.  Note: In the survey, the term 'non-traditional' is synonymous with 'complementary'.  The survey also collected data on 'traditional' (conventional) therapies for comparison.

(Since these results are from a web-based survey, there is no medical validation of the results. For advice on your unique medical condition, please consult your health care provider. No portion of these results may be reproduced without express written consent of PDSA.)
