Long-term Study of Romiplostim in Thrombocytopenic Pediatric Patients With Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP)

Official Title

A Single Arm, Open-label, Long-term Efficacy and Safety Study of Romiplostim in Thrombocytopenic Pediatric Subjects With Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP)

Brief Summary

      This is a phase 3b single arm, open label, multicenter study describing the percentage of
      time pediatric participants with ITP have a platelet response while receiving romiplostim,
      defined as a platelet count ≥ 50 x 10^9/L in the absence of ITP rescue medications for the
      past 4 weeks.

Study Phase

Phase 3

Study Type


Primary Outcome

Percentage of Time With a Platelet Response During the First 6 Months of Treatment

Secondary Outcome

 Percentage of Time With a Platelet Response During the Overall Treatment Period


Immune Thrombocytopenia



Study Arms / Comparison Groups

Description:  Participants received romiplostim administered weekly by subcutaneous injection for up to 3 years. The starting dose was 1 µg/kg titrated in 1 µg/kg increments up to a maximum of 10 µg/kg to reach a target platelet count ≥ 50 x 10⁹/L.
