We now propose this Phase 2, non-randomized pilot study of eltrombopag in aplastic anemia patients with immunosuppressive therapy refractory thrombocytopenia. Subjects will initiate study medication at an oral dose of 50 mg/day (25 mg/day for East Asians), which will be increased or decreased as clinically indicated to the lowest dose that maintains a stable platelet count 20,000/(micro)L above baseline while maximizing tolerability.
