We are delighted to introduce fact sheets on the most common platelet function disorders.
See our Resource Library for these publications: Fact sheets
The series of Factsheets provide an easily understood overview of the known forms of platelet function disorders for patients and family members.
Information is available on all of the major forms of platelet function disorders on the internet and in scientific publications. However, many of these use complex scientific terms and it is difficult to compare one disorder to another because of differences in content. The Factsheets provide a brief summary of each disorder in a unified format enabling comparison between disorders.
The Factsheets are compiled by scientist and clinicians from the University of Birmingham Platelet Group.
The first six Factsheets were released in February 2016. The Platelet Charity publishes one Factsheet every month.
The following sheets are available:
– ADP P2Y12 receptor disorder
– Bernard Soulier syndrome
– Glanzmann Thrombasthenia
– Grey Platelet syndrome
– Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome (HPS)
– MYH9-related disorder
