Clinical Trial of Gut Microbiota in the Management of Immune Thrombocytopenia

Loss of immune tolerance leading to increased platelet destruction and decreased platelet production is the main pathogenesis of ITP. Dysbiosis of the gut microbiota was found as a main influencer in many autoimmune diseases. One ITP patient also diagnosed with ulcerative colitis(UC) was treated with FMT and got progressive but significant increase in platelet level and lasted for several years. This study is examining if gut microbiota plays a bigger role in ITP then previously identified.
