Brief Summary:

Using eltronmobag as an alternative pathway, which depend on stimulation of thrombocyte synthesis, in chronic and persistent immune thrombocytopenia may be more promising treatment than the classic type, not only by increasing platelets count but also through enhancing of the platelets activation and upregulation of GPVI expression on platelet surface.

This study will include 40 pediatric patients with chronic or persistent ITP, recruited from the Hematology clinic of pediatric hospital Ain Shams University, aiming to investigate the efficacy, & the safety and tolerability of eltrombopag therapy for children as well as the ability of eltrombopag to enhance the platelet activation through the up-regulation of glycoprotein VI (GPVI) receptor expression in comparison with other lines of treatment.

Patients will be divided into 2 groups : Group 1 on eltrombopag ; Group 2 : receiving other lines of therapy .

All Patients will be subjected to :

  1. bleeding score assessment ( baseline &every month ) and Health related quality of life based on Kids' ITP Tools (KIT) questionnaires( baseline and week 24 )
  2. Baseline and at week 24 bone marrow examination with reticulin stain
  3. clinical examination every 2 weeks and complete blood counts.
  4. Assessment of soluble form of glycoprotein VI using sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) as well as assessment of platelet activation by GPVI using flowcytometry (Gardiner, etal.,2010 ) at baseline and at the end of 6 months treatment period

  Show Detailed Description

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 40 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:

Patients will be divided into 2 groups:

Group 1 (eltrombopag arm n=20 patients): Patients who showed no response (platelet count ≤ 20x109/L) initially for 3 months or relapse after 6 months after at least one prior ITP therapy. patients will receive a total daily dose of eltrombopag of (25-50mg/d). Dose adjustments may be made based on platelets count.

Group 2 (n=20 patients) Patients who are currently receiving other lines of treatment (steroids, IVIG, azathioprine, and rituximab).

Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Actual Study Start Date : August 1, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : November 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : November 2019


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: group 1 Eltrombopag arm

Group 1 (eltrombopag arm n=20 patients): Patients who showed no response (platelet count ≤ 20x109/L) initially for 3 months or relapse after 6 months after at least one prior ITP therapy. patients will receive a total daily dose of eltrombopag of (25-50mg/d). Dose adjustments may be made based on platelets count with an increment of 25mg once per day at 2 weeks intervals (Maximum dose: 75 mg orally once a day).

Patients, who responded poorly to eltrombopag in 6 months or developed adverse effects, were asked to discontinue the medication. Those who responded were followed for further 6 month period.

Drug: Eltrombopag
Patients who showed no response (platelet count ≤ 20x109/L) initially for 3 months or relapse after 6 months after at least one prior ITP therapy will receive a total daily dose of eltrombopag of (25-50mg/d)
Other Name: Revolade

Group 2 (n=20 patients) Patients who are currently receiving other lines of treatment (steroids, IVIG, azathioprine, and rituximab).

patients will continue on the conventional line of treatment

Drug: conventional
Patients who are currently receiving conventional lines of treatment (steroids, IVIG, azathioprine, and rituximab, Mycophenolate mofetil) will continue on the same line of treatment

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Expression of glycoprotein VI collagen receptor [ Time Frame: at 24 weeks ]
    Percentages of patients achieving increased expression of glycoprotein VI collagen receptor


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Complete response or response [ Time Frame: at 24 weeks ]
    Percentages of patients achieving Complete response" (CR) defined as any platelet count of 100x109/L at least once throughout the study period in the absence of rescue treatment and those achieving "Response" (R) is defined as any platelet count between 50 and 100x 109/L or doubling of the baseline count at least once throughout the study period

  2. Maintenance of response [ Time Frame: at 24 weeks ]
    The maximum duration for which a patient continuously maintained a platelet count between 50 and 100x 10*9/L in the absence of rescue treatment.

  3. Safety: Number of Patients who will have adverse events [ Time Frame: at 24 weeks ]
    Number of Patients who will have adverse events.
