GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) confirmed today that the European Commission (EC) has granted marketing authorisation for Revolade ® (eltrombopag) for the oral treatment of thrombocytopenia (reduced platelet count) in adults with the blood disorder chronic immune (idiopathic) thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Eltrombopag is indicated for adult chronic ITP splenectomised patients who are refractory (have not responded) to other treatments, such as corticosteroids and immunoglobulins. Eltrombopag may also be considered as second-line treatment for adult non-splenectomised patients where surgery is contraindicated.

Eltrombopag was discovered as a result of a research collaboration between GSK and Ligand Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: LGND), and developed by GSK.

GlaxoSmithKline – one of the world’s leading research-based pharmaceutical and healthcare companies – is committed to improving the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better and live longer. For further information please visit www.gsk.com.
