The FDA has accepted a supplemental new drug application (sNDA) for review for avatrombopag (Doptelet) as a treatment for patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) who have had an inadequate response to prior treatment, according to Dova Pharmaceuticals, the developer of the second-generation, oral thrombopoietin receptor agonist.1

Avatrombopag was initially approved by the FDA as a treatment for thrombocytopenia in adults with chronic liver disease who are scheduled to undergo a medical or dental procedure.
