Almost half of adult patients with previously treated chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) achieved major responses with the SYK inhibitor fostamatinib (Tavalisse), according to an analysis of pooled clinical study data.

The incidence of serious adverse events (SAEs) was 27% (n = 39). The incidence of SAEs probably/possibly related to fostamatinib was 6%, consisting of diarrhea and neutropenia in 2 patients each and increased transaminase, atrial fibrillation, upper respiratory tract infection, sepsis, pneumonia, pyrexia, and hypertensive crisis in 1 patient each.
