New Blood Research Data Have Been Reported by B. Bockow and Co-Authors



By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Blood Weekly -- Fresh data on Blood Research are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Seattle, Washington, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Immune thrombocytopenic purpura is thought to be characterized by an immune response against the host's own platelets. If the thrombocytopenia is severe, patients are initially treated with high-dose steroids."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research, "Other more toxic second line treatments are considered if steroids fail. Here, we report the case of two patients in whom conventional treatment was unsuccessful but who responded to hydroxychloroquine and high-dose vitamin D replacement therapy."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "To the best of our knowledge, this is the first description of successful treatment for immune thrombocytopenia with high-dose vitamin D and hydroxychloroquine."

For more information on this research see: Refractory immune thrombocytopenia successfully treated with high-dose vitamin D supplementation and hydroxychloroquine: two case reports.
