Baylor College of Medicine is conducting a prospective, open label, randomized, two-arm, multi-center Phase 3 trial using eltrombopag, a thrombopoietin receptor agonist, in newly diagnosed children, between the ages of 1-18 years. Participants must have a platelet count below 30 X 109/L. Children will be randomized (2:1) into one of two groups, either the treatment group (where they will receive eltrombopag), or the standard group (where they will receive standard first line therapies). The goal of the study is to see which group elicits a greater overall platelet response.
