Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Disorders of platelet number and function impact patients in various ways. They can leave patients at risk of bleeding or thrombosis, and also affect patients' quality of life. Regarding these diseases, there have been recent changes in the diagnostic tools and therapeutic approaches used, and these changes are also impacting patients.

We are looking to publish a Special Issue in the Journal of Clinical Medicine dedicated to topics surrounding platelet disorders. We encourage the submission of articles including, but not limited to, the following: immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), thrombotic microangiopathies, congenital (or pediatric) thrombocytopenia, thrombocytosis, heparin-induced thrombocytopenia or vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia. We encourage you and your colleagues to submit your latest research or reviews related to the diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment, and any issues surrounding the management of patients with platelet disorders.

Dr. Marshall A. Mazepa
