Long term outcome of ITP and Graves

Postby CureOrBust » Sun Aug 17, 2008 6:05 am

I had yet to personally read if the two major side effects discussed were long term or temporary, until I came across the following, so I thought I would store it somewhere:
http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm?fuseaction=show&pageid=1307
He said the clinical trial so far has yielded five other cases of the bleeding disorder, called immune thrombocytopenic purpura , or ITP. All of those patients were treated and recovered.
So ITP appears to be a treatable condition?
...and two people developed Graves' disease, an autoimmune thyroid condition that requires lifetime maintenance....
Graves, appears to be lifelong?
