Most pediatric patients with immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) had rapid and durable platelet responses when treated with the thrombopoietin fusion protein analog romiplostim (Nplate), according to integrated data from 5 clinical trials that were presented at the 2018 ASH Annual Meeting.

Nearly 90% of 282 evaluable patients had platelet responses, which occurred after a median treatment duration of 6 weeks. Patients remained in response for a median of 76% of months during follow-up.
