Condition(s) targeted: Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura

Intervention: Immunoglobulin Intravenous (Human) (Drug)

Phase: Phase 3

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: CSL Behring


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, tolerability and safety of IgPro10 in the treatment of patients with chronic ITP. The main efficacy parameter is the proportion of patients responding to treatment by an increase of platelet count to > 50 x 10^9/L.

Clinical Details

Official title: An Open-Label, Multicenter Study on the Efficacy and Safety of IgPro10 in Patients With Chronic Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)

Study design: Treatment, Non-Randomized, Open Label, Uncontrolled, Single Group Assignment, Safety/Efficacy Study

Primary outcome: Response rate, defined by the percentage of patients responding to IgPro10 with an increase of platelet count from ≤ 20 x 10^9/L to ≥ 50 x 10^9/L within 7 days

Secondary outcome:

Regression of hemorrhages

Time to platelet response

Duration of platelet response

Frequency, severity and relatedness of adverse events


Minimum age: 12 Years. Maximum age: 65 Years. Gender(s): Both.


Key Inclusion Criteria:
