Abstract

Mean platelet survival was significantly decreased (P<0.01) in three children with chronic and five children with acute ITP in remission. Sera from these patients sensitized normal platelets, as demonstrated by increased phagocytosis by autologous granulocytes. These results may suggest that the remission in some patients with ITP is obtained by compensatory platelet production.
