The Handbook ~ Immune Thrombocytopenia

Dear Readers...

The European School of Haematology (ESH) is proud to offer you this first edition of the Handbook on Immune Thrombocytopenia.

ESH is a not for profit organisation devoted to continuing education in haematology and related fields. Our conferences and training courses are organised throughout Europe and beyond.

The editors and authors of this handbook have very generously shared their time and scientific expertise so as to make it possible to offer you this educational tool. We extend our most heartfelt thanks to them.

We warmly acknowledge the invaluable support of Diana Samson whose work and dedication have made it possible to finalise the book on schedule.

We also express our gratitude to AMGEN for their support of ESH educational activities in general, and in particular of this handbook.
