ITP (immune thrombocytopenic purpura) is a bleeding disorder in which platelets, which play a vital role in preventing bleeding by forming blood clots and helping to heal wounds, are destroyed by the immune system.

Today, there are a variety of treatment options designed to either increase platelet production or decrease the amount of platelets destroyed by the immune system. Dr. Cyrus Hsia, a Hematologist at the London Health Sciences Centre in Ontario, describes the latest therapies, how they work and how patients can manage ITP.
