For Health Professionals - Patient Recruitment
We are interested in recruiting the following groups of patients from collaborating centres:
1. Patients with a clinically diagnosed platelet defect(excluding known defects such as Bernard-Soulier, Glanzmann's disease and May Hegglin anomaly) regardless of their local platelet function testing results. If potential recruits have affected family members we would also be interested in recruiting the relatives.
2. Patients with inherited thrombocytopenia. If potential recruits have affected family members we would also be interested in recruiting the relatives.
We are also studying women with menorrhagia (heavy periods) without an obvious medical explanation, and patients who experience gastrointestinal bleeding on antiplatelet agents, but at the moment we are only recruiting for these groups from Birmingham.
If you are interested in participating please contact us:
Professor Steve Watson - Chief Investigator
Gillian Lowe (Academic Clinical Fellow)
We are happy to discuss potential participants on a case by case basis.
