Proof-of-Concept: A Pilot, Randomized, Double-Blind Study of Oseltamivir Versus Placebo for Immune Thrombocytopenia

Oseltamivir is an attractive drug for ITP since it specifically targets a pathophysiologic mechanism that appears to be important for the development of ITP and has a benign side effect profile compared to standard ITP therapy. This pilot, proof-of-concept, randomized controlled clinical trial has the potential to dramatically change the treatment of ITP.



A Study of PRN1008 in Adult Patients With Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)

Principia Biopharma is conducting a study of their oral drug PRN1008 in patients with ITP who are refractory or relapsed with no available and approved therapeutic options and have a platelet count <30,000/μL on two counts no sooner than 7 days apart in the 15 days before treatment begins. Preclinical findings show that PRN1008 decreases the activity of B cells and other inflammatory-causing immune cells, and in a mouse model of ITP show that PRN1008 can reduce platelet loss.
