Answer

The American Society of Hematology (ASH) published an updated evidence-based practice guideline for immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) in 2011. [8] The next update of the guideline is expected in 2017. The guideline comprises recommendations (grade 1B) and suggestions (grade 2C). Recommendations and suggestions are provided separately for pediatric and adult patients. In 2013, ASH issued a clinical practice guide on the treatment of thrombocytopenia in pregnancy, based in part on the 2011 guideline. [18]
