Mechanism of action

Recombinant human thrombopoietin has similar biological functions as endogenous thrombopoietin.2 It activates the thrombopoietin receptor MPL.1 This therapy has potential roles in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell regeneration and is currently being investigated against relapsed immune thrombocytopenia, hematopoietic injury, and acute severe thrombocytopenia in sepsis.
