What is romiplostim used for?

What is romiplostim used for?

romiplostim is a thrombopoietin receptor agonist and is used for the following:

  • Blood problems caused by too much radiation (hematopoietic syndrome of acute radiation syndrome).
How does romiplostim work?

How does romiplostim work?

romiplostim is a thrombopoietin receptor agonist. This means that it acts like the hormone thrombopoietin that’s responsible for the production of your platelets. Platelets are blood cells that help you form clots to prevent bleeds. When your platelet levels are too low, you’re at higher risk for bleeds. romiplostim is used to raise the amount of platelets in people with immune thrombocytopenia, a condition where your platelets are attacked by your immune system. romiplostim is also used to raise platelet levels in people whose platelets have been destroyed by too much radiation exposure. By raising the platelet levels, this medication helps lower the risk for bleeding.

How do I take romiplostim?

How do I take romiplostim?
