This paper presents an ongoing study of children with chronic ITP in Sweden that addresses four specific questions: is there a subgroup of children with chronic ITP that have impaired platelet function? Do children in this subgroup have antibodies directed against surface glycoproteins that are crucial for platelet function? Can desmopressin improve the impaired platelet function in this subgroup? Do children with chronic ITP show signs of cell-mediated cytotoxicity?
