ITP Research funded or supported by the Association

There is no state funding for ITP research, nor does The ITP Support Association receive any government funding, so it is entirely due to the generous donations and fundraising efforts of people with an interest in ITP that such valuable and much-needed research, as listed below, has been carried out.

New projects yet to start

In 2016 The Association agreed to fund the following projects:

 

  • £24,740 The development of a blood test to predict responses to steroid treatment in patients with immune thrombocytopenia.
  • £8,500 Immune thrombocytopenia, immunomodulation and fatigue.
  • £20,000 Can susceptibility-weighted MRI be used to investigate brain micro haemorrhage in thrombocytopenic patients?
