The definition of immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP) as a peripheral blood platelet count less than 100 × 10⁹/L instead of the historical criteria of 150 × 10⁹/L renders subjects with platelets between 100 and 150 × 10⁹/L without a diagnosis. Here, we demonstrated that these subjects have enhanced levels of proinflammatory cytokines linked to Th1 and Th17 cell(More)
Helicobacter pylori eradication induces platelet recovery in a subgroup of patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (cITP), but the mechanisms involved are still not understood. We aimed to evaluate the effect of H. pylori eradication on platelet response and to identify the associated serum cytokine profile in 95 patients with cITP. Serum cytokine(More)
Th17 cells have been associated with immune-mediated diseases in humans but it has still not been determined whether they play a role in immune thrombocytopenia. We evaluated representative cytokines of the Th17, Th1, Th2 and Treg cell commitment in the serum of patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia, as well as the cell source of IL-17A. Higher(More)
