Interim long-term follow-up data show AMG 531 increases platelets in patients with ITP

dministration of AMG 531 in both pre- and post-splenectomy ITP patients. Eligible patients had completed a previous AMG 531 study in ITP and had a baseline platelet count of less than 50,000 platelets per microliter, with no recent significant change in medical history. The AMG 531 starting dose was 1 g/kg by subcutaneous injection with dose adjustment to a maximum of 15 g/kg. Patients were administered AMG 531 by injection once weekly unless their platelet count exceeded 400,000 platelets per microliter. Once patients reached a stable dose and schedule, physician office visits were reduced from weekly to once per month. Concurrent corticosteroid treatment could be tapered when patients' platelet counts reached 50,000 platelets per microliter. The study is available for patients completing the two ongoing Phase 3 AMG 531 studies in ITP.
