Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Platelet Counts on Day 15 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 15 ]
    Platelet counts were measured by blood draw. Change from Baseline was calculated as the Day 15 value minus the Baseline value.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Analysis of Covariance for Three Patterns of Dose Response Using the Change From Baseline in Platelet Counts (Baseline Platelet Counts as Covariate) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 15 ]
    Exploratory analysis was conducted to see a dose response/trend when a dose goes high with the changes from baseline in platelet counts (12.5 mg, 25 mg, and 37.5 mg) on Day 15 of each subject. The data were analyzed with baseline of platelet counts as covariate for the following dose response pattern using contrast: (1) linearity, (2) saturation at the medium dose, (3) onset of response at the high dose.

  • Analysis of Covariance for Three Patterns of Dose Response Using the Change From Baseline in Platelet Counts (Baseline of Platelet Counts and Child-Pugh Class as Covariates) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 15 ]
    Exploratory analysis was conducted to see a dose response/trend when a dose goes high with the changes from baseline in platelet counts (12.5 mg, 25 mg, and 37.5 mg) on Day 15 of each subject. The data were analyzed with baseline of platelet counts and Child-Pugh class as covariate for the following dose response pattern using contrast: (1) linearity, (2) saturation at the medium dose, (3) onset of response at the high dose.

  • Percent Change From Baseline in Platelet Counts on Day 15 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 15 ]
    Platelet counts were measured by blood draw. Change from Baseline was calculated as the Day 15 value minus the Baseline value.

  • Platelet Counts by Treatment Visit [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline), Day 8, Day 15, and Final Assessment Point (Day 15 or Day 22) ]
    Platelet counts were measured by blood draw. The Final Assessment Point is the last visit during the treatment period, which is Day 15 or Day 22.

  • Platelet Counts by Post-Treatment Visit [ Time Frame: 4 days post-treatment, 8 days post-treatment, and 15 days post-treatment ]
    Platelet counts were measured by blood draw.

  • Platelet Counts at Day 22 [ Time Frame: Day 22 ]
    Platelet counts were measured by blood draw. The Final Assessment Point is the last visit during the treatment period, which is Day 15 or Day 22.

  • Change From Baseline in Platelet Counts by Treatment Visit [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 8, Day 15, and Final Assessment Point (Day 15 or Day 22) ]
    Platelet counts were measured by blood draw. The Final Assessment Point is the last visit during the treatment period, which is Day 15 or Day 22. Change from Baseline was calculated as the value at each visit minus the Baseline value.

  • Change From Baseline in Platelet Counts by Post-Treatment Visit [ Time Frame: 4 days post-treatment, 8 days post-treatment, and 15 days post-treatment ]
    Platelet counts were measured by blood draw. Change from Baseline was calculated as the value at each visit minus the Baseline value.

  • Percentage of Responders on Day 15 [ Time Frame: Day 15 ]
    A responder was defined as a participant with a platelet count within the target range (>=80 x 10^9/Liter) on Day 15.

  • Percentage of Responders on Day 22 [ Time Frame: Day 22 ]
    A responder was defined as a participant with a platelet count within the target range (>=80 x 10^9/Liter) on Day 22 after receiving eltrombopag for an additional week from Day 15, on which his or her platelet count was <80 x 10^9/Liter.

  • Change From Baseline in Platelet Counts on Day 15 by Child-Pugh Class [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 15 ]
    Change from Baseline was calculated as the Day 15 value minus the Baseline value. The Child-Pugh (CP) score (ranging from 5 to 15, with 5 being mild and 15 being severe), calculated based on total bilirubin, serum albumin, international normalized ratio, ascites, and hepatic encephalopathy, is used to assess the severity of liver disease. A CP score of 5 or 6 is classified as Class A (mild), a score of 7-9 is classified as Class B (moderate), and a score >=10 is classified as Class C (severe). Participants with a CP score <10 were enrolled in the study.

  • Change From Baseline in Platelet Counts on Day 15 by Sex [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 15 ]
    Change from Baseline was calculated as the Day 15 value minus the Baseline value. The numbers of females and males in each treatment group are illustrated by the "n's" in the category titles.

  • Change From Baseline in Platelet Counts on Day 15 by Age [ Time Frame: Baseline, Day 15 ]
    Change from Baseline was calculated as the Day 15 value minus the Baseline value. The numbers of participants in each age category are illustrated by the "n's" in the category titles.

  • Log-transformed Cmax on Days 14 and 15 in Participants Receiving Eltrombopag 12.5 mg [ Time Frame: Day 14, Day 15 ]
    Serial PK samples were collected over a 24-hour (h) period on Days 14 and 15 in participants receiving eltrombopag 12.5 mg. A total of 8 blood samples (3 milliliters per sample) were collected at pre-dose, and at 1 h, 2 h, 4 h, 6 h, 8 h, 10 h, and 24 h post-dose. Cmax=maximum drug concentration.

  • Log-transformed Tmax on Days 14 and 15 in Participants Receiving Eltrombopag 12.5 mg [ Time Frame: Day 14, Day 15 ]
    Serial PK samples were collected over a 24-hour (h) period on Days 14 and 15 in participants receiving eltrombopag 12.5 mg. A total of 8 blood samples (3 milliliters per sample) were collected at pre-dose, and at 1 h, 2 h, 4 h, 6 h, 8 h, 10 h, and 24 h post-dose. Tmax=maximum drug concentration time.

  • Log-transformed AUC(0-t) and AUC(0-24) on Days 14 and 15 in Participants Receiving Eltrombopag 12.5 mg [ Time Frame: Day 14, Day 15 ]
    Serial PK samples were collected over a 24-hour (h) period on Days 14 and 15 in participants receiving eltrombopag 12.5 mg. A total of 8 blood samples (3 milliliters per sample) were collected at pre-dose, and at 1 h, 2 h, 4 h, 6 h, 8 h, 10 h, and 24 h post-dose. AUC(0-t)=area under the concentration-time curve from time zero (pre-dose) to last time of quantifiable concentration, and AUC(0-24)=area under the concentration-time curve from 0 (pre-dose) to 24 hours.
