Thumbs up Promacta for low platelets approved by FDA

Hi all,
At last the second drug for low platelets - Eltrombopag/Promacta/Revolade has been approved by FDA for patients with Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura!

We hope that the trials with treatment with Promacta for low platelets due to treatment of Hepatitis C and cancer like sarcoma will show good effect and that patients with bone marrow diseases can tolerate the drug.
Kind regards
