The UK Paediatric ITP registry is a multi-centre study designed to collect prospective data on all new cases of childhood immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP)
The database will continue to collect data for many years about children whose ITP fails to resolve. Clinical data, bleeding severity, platelet counts and management will be recorded.
More information on the study, including the Protocol, can be read here
The Registry is generously supported by the ITP Support Association
Recruitment is open to all patients between the ages of 2 months and 18 years that have been diagnosed at any time.
