REVOLADE is proven for rapid and consistent response in primary immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).1–3

 

INDICATION

REVOLADE is indicated for the treatment of patients aged 1 year and above with primary ITP lasting 6 months or longer from diagnosis and who are refractory to other treatments (e.g. corticosteroids, immunoglobulins).2

REVOLADE is indicated in adult patients with chronic HCV infection for the treatment of thrombocytopenia, where the degree of thrombocytopenia is the main factor preventing the initiation or limiting the ability to maintain optimal interferon-based therapy.2

REVOLADE is indicated in adult patients with acquired SAA who were either refractory to prior immunosuppressive therapy or heavily pretreated and are unsuitable for haematopoietic stem cell transplantation.2

 

WHAT IS REVOLADE?

REVOLADE is a once-daily thrombopoietin receptor agonist (TPO-RA). Available in a film-coated tablet formulation, REVOLADE binds to TPO receptors resulting in an increased production of platelets:2

  • REVOLADE can offer CONFIDENCE through consistent response*– 85.8% of ITP patients responded to treatment (n=259/302) in the EXTEND study1,4†
  • REVOLADE can offer CONVENIENT dose adjustment with a flexible 2-step titration2,3
  • REVOLADE can achieve platelet CONTROL without immunosuppression2,5
  • REVOLADE has an established safety profile, with >8 years of clinical experience1,3,6,7
