Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)

What is ITP?

Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an autoimmune disease in which your body attacks its own platelets – small cells in your blood that that help to build a clot to stop bleeding.

People with ITP often experience purple bruises and red or purple skin discolorations, as well as nosebleeds, bleeding of the gums, heavy menstrual bleeding, and hematomas. CSL Behring offers immunoglobulin therapies to increase a patient’s platelet counts.
