Eltrombopag Used in Thrombocytopenia After Comsolidation Therapy in AML


Brief description of study

Eltrombopag has been used in the treatment of immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), and significantly increased platelet count and decreased fatal hemorrage. As it's known that all patients with acute leukemia will experience bone marrow suppression and thrombocytopenia after chemotherapy. Some patients even died of fatal bleeding during this period for lacking of platelet transfusion or platelet transfusion refractoriness. So a lot needs to be done to shortern thrombocytopenia time or reduce fatal hemorrage incidence after chemotherapy in acute leukemia patients. In this prospective randomized controlled study, the effect and safety of eltrombopag in the treatment of thrombocytopenia after consolidation therapy in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is evaluated.
