Further study details as provided by Shionogi Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the long-term safety of S-888711 [ Time Frame: Up to three years ]
    By measuring the number of study participants with AEs as an indication of drug safety and tolerability

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess dose requirements for long-term platelet response [ Time Frame: Up to three years ]
  • To assess durability of platelet response [ Time Frame: up to three years ]
  • To evaluate bleeding events by World Health Organization (WHO) bleeding criteria [ Time Frame: up to three years ]
    Evaluation will utilize World Health Organization (WHO) bleeding criteria

Enrollment: 19
Study Start Date: March 2010
Primary Completion Date: August 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
