The aims of this study were to assess the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection in chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura adult patients and investigate the platelet response after eradication. To minimize the confounding effect of concomitant idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura therapies, patients were eligible for the prospective study if they had 20-100 x 10/l platelets, and no requirement for treatment for thrombocytopenia or no change of doses of ongoing medications for at 3… CONTINUE READING
