people. NIH doctors are conducting a study to examine how platelet
sacs are formed and what happens to cause bleeding disorders.
Study results may contribute to the medical care, treatment and
prevention of problems associated with this disorder. If you
have been diagnosed with abnormal platelets, call 1-800-411-1222
