Brief Summary:
This study is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel group, repeat-dose, study conducted in two parts (Part A and Part B) examining 30, 50, and 75 mg doses of SB-497115-GR as a treatment for patients with ITP who have failed prior therapy. The study is designed to determine the proportion of patients with a platelet count =50,000/µL after 42 days. In Part B, 99 newly-recruited subjects will be randomized to one of two dosing arms in a 2:1 ratio of active:placebo. During the 6 week study period, subjects will start on placebo or active drug (50 mg) and may have a dose increase to 75 mg based upon their platelet count at day 22.

Detailed Description:
A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel group study to investigate the efficacy, safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of SB-497119-GR, a thrombopoietin receptor agonist, administered at 30, 50, and 75 mg as oral tablets once-daily for 6 weeks to adult male and female subjects with refractory, chronic immune thrombocytopenia purpura

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)

Actual Study Completion Date : January 2007

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Treatment response, assessed by the proportion of patients with platelet counts of =50, 000/µL (compared with baseline count of <30, 000/µL) after 42 days of treatment.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety, tolerability, PK, PD, symptoms associated with ITP, and QoL, odds of response vs placebo during weeks 2 to 6 of the study.
