A Pediatric Trial Using Tranexamic Acid in Thrombocytopenia

Brief description of study

This study evaluates the use of tranexamic acid (TXA) in addition to standard therapy in children receiving chemotherapy or blood and/or marrow transplantation to decrease the risk of bleeding. Half of participants will receive tranexamic acid and half of participants will receive placebo.

Detailed Study Description

The purpose of this study is to conduct a prospective, randomized, blinded, placebo controlled trial to evaluate the safety and feasibility of the addition of antifibrinolytic therapy with tranexamic acid to the standard care in patients who are thrombocytopenic due to primary bone marrow disorders or chemotherapy, immunotherapy and/or radiation therapy in order to prevent bleeding. The results of this study will change practice by providing evidence as to whether or not TXA is effective and safe treatment when used as an adjunct to platelet transfusion therapy in the thrombocytopenic patient.
