AbstractPlatelet kinetic studies in idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) have shown that in a subgroup of patients a shortened mean platelet life (MPL) is associated with a decreased platelet production rate (PPR). Other methods of studying certain aspects of thrombocytopoiesis are the plasma concentrations of thrombopoietin and glycocalicin.
