This is Your Opportunity to
Enable TTP Research
such as...
 

A prospective randomised controlled trial of low-dose versus standard dose rituximab for prevention of relapses in acquired TTP.

"The findings of the study will directly affect care of TTP patients, as it will investigate the benefit of rituximab in patients at preventing TTP relapse and whether low-dose treatment is as effective and may have fewer side effects."  
      --- Dr. M. Thomas

What is TTP?

A TTP, Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, diagnosis is scary and complex. Many patients have never heard of this 3 letter acronym before, nor have they any idea as to its ramifications. TTP is a medical emergency causing small blood clots and potentially fatal complications. Early diagnosis is key to survival. TTP can strike anyone, at any stage of life. Three in one million people are diagnosed each year. Symptoms include: fatigue, fever, diarrhea, chest pain, bleeding, dark urine, confusion, headaches, visual changes, bruising, purpura, petechiae.


Research is Hope. Awareness is Low. Early Diagnosis is Key.
