Antiplatelet drugs can be useful to prevent thrombosis in high risk patients, for example, postoperatively. 4). History and examination of patients Abnormal bleeding associated with thrombocytopenia or abnormal platelet function is characterized by spontaneous skin purpura and ecchymoses, mucous membrane bleeding and protracted bleeding after trauma. Prolonged nosebleeds can occur, particularly in children, and menorrhagia or postpartum haemorrhage is common in women. Rarely, subconjunctival, retinal, gastrointestinal, genitourinary and intracranial bleeds may occur.

0 g daily. Toxicity includes rashes, gastrointestinal upset and mouth ulceration, but side effects are actually very rare at standard dosage. Interferon-α Interferon-α is a member of a family of naturally occurring glycoproteins with antiviral and antiproliferative actions. Side effects include short-term fever and flu-like symptoms and sometimes also persisting anorexia, weight loss, depression, alopecia, rashes, neuropathies, autoimmune disorders and thrombocytopenia. Currently, interferon-α should be considered for chronic phase patients resistant to imatinib mesylate.

The Ph chromosome is derived from a normal 22 chromosome that has lost part of its long arm as a result of a balanced reciprocal translocation of chromosomal material involving one of each pair of chromosomes 9 and 22; thus the translocation is t(9;22)(q34;q11). The Ph chromosome (also known as 22q–) therefore appears somewhat shorter than its normal counterpart, and the 9q+ somewhat longer than the normal chromosome 9. The Ph chromosome carries a specific fusion gene known as bcr– abl, which results from juxtaposition of part of the abl proto-oncogene (from chromosome 9) with part of the bcr gene on chromosome 22.
