The Platelet

The Platelet is the quarterly journal of The ITP Support Association. A current edition is included in the information pack and each issue is sent free of charge to those on the mailing list.

Features include:-
• News and views on ITP related matters
• Reader’s questions answered by one of the Association’s Medical Advisors
• Updates on ITP research and clinical trials at The Royal London Hospital
• Updates on the adult and childhood registries by UK ITP specialists
• Readers’ letters
• ITP articles by two leading ITP specialists in America (see American Perspective)
• General medical advice from a GP practice
• Case histories from ITP sufferers
• News on ITP fundraising
• Reviews and photos from the annual ITP Convention

Many readers tell us that they find The Platelet a 'lifeline'. Often isolated and frightened by a rare and complicated sounding disorder ITP can seem very threatening, especially when it is first diagnosed. The Platelet can offer comfort to readers and help them to feel supported and understood.

Many previous articles from The Platelet are reprinted in the form of factsheets and are available to Association members on the Publications Order Form (enclosed with the information pack).

If you are on the mailing list and would like some of the articles in previous editions of The Platelet, please click here to get the Free publications request form.
