abstract

  • In this preliminary study, the value of different platelet parameters, measured by the ADVIA120 Analyzer, in predicting the immediate response to intravenous immunoglobulin or intravenous anti-RhoD was assessed in 31 patients with immune thrombocytopenic purpura. The number of large platelets pre-treatment was the only independent predictor of the 24 hour-platelet increase.
