Patients with haematologic malignancies and chemotherapy-induced thrombocytopenia (3 randomised controlled trials (RCTs), n= 315).
Less severe bleeds (WHO Grades 1 and 2).
More severe bleeds (WHO Grades 3 and 4).
The total data aggregated from the 3 RCTs was 5476 daily bleeding assessments, 61.8% with a bleed documented. A total of 98.3% were Grade 1 and 2 bleeds and 1.7% were Grades 3 and 4. Grade 1 and 2 bleeds were composed of 20 different bleeding signs and symptoms. Haematuria was associated with incident Grade 3 or 4 bleeds. In patients with hematologic malignancy, only haematuria was associated with more severe incident bleeds.
