Eltrombopag for Enhancing Platelet Engraftment in Pediatric Patients Undergoing Cord Blood Transplantation

Brief description of study

Platelet recovery is significantly hampered following umbilical cord blood transplantation (UCB). Thus, after UCB transplantations, patients are platelet transfusion-dependent for prolong periods of time. Eltrombopag is a thrombopoietin-receptor agonist that initiates thrombopoietin-receptor signaling and thereby induces proliferation and maturation of megakaryocytes. We will evaluate the safety and efficacy of eltrombopag for enhancing platelet engraftment in pediatric patients undergoing cord blood transplantation.
