1 August 2018 (Wednesday) - Romiplostin

I read in a patient’s clinical details to day “On Romiplostin”. I’d never heard of that before…

Romiplostim is a fusion protein analog of thrombopoietin, the hormone that regulates platelet production. There’s some NICE guidance on the stuff here.
I was rather amazed to see there was no information available on its use in pregnancy or when breast feeding or on renal impairment… I wonder why?
