Detailed Description

This is a multi-center, open label, phase Ib clinical study. The effectiveness of the multiple-dose regimen of recombinant human thrombopoietin injection in the treatment of thrombocytopenia in patients with chronic liver disease is mainly verified by evaluating the proportion of responders with platelet count in the first 8 days after treatment. Cohort 1 (n=18) : 50*10^9/L ≤ Baseline of PLT < 75*10^9/L. Cohort 2 (n=36) : 30*10^9/L ≤ Baseline of PLT < 50*10^9/L.

Interventions

  • Drug: recombinant human thrombopoietin injection
    • recombinant human thrombopoietin: 15000 U subcutaneous injection once a day for 7 days

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Experimental: Cohort 1 : 50*10^9/L ≤ Baseline of PLT < 75*10^9/L
    • The multiple-dose regimen (15000 U subcutaneous injection once a day for 7 days) of recombinant human thrombopoietin (rhTPO) injection for the treatment of thrombocytopenia in patients with chronic liver disease.
  • Experimental: Cohort 2 : 30*10^9/L ≤ Baseline of PLT < 50*10^9/L.
    • The multiple-dose regimen (15000 U subcutaneous injection once a day for 7 days) of recombinant human thrombopoietin (rhTPO) injection for the treatment of thrombocytopenia in patients with chronic liver disease.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • the proportion of responders with platelet count
    • Time Frame: Up to 8 days
    • Based on the results of routine blood tests, calculate the proportion of responders with platelet counts in the first 8 days after treatment

Secondary Measures

  • the proportion of responders with platelet count
    • Time Frame: Up to 36 days
    • Based on the results of routine blood tests, calculate the proportion of responders with platelet counts during the study
  • Platelet count
    • Time Frame: Up to 36 days
    • Based on the results of routine blood tests, calculate the change in platelet count from baseline at different visit times after treatment. Calculate the duration of alleviation of thrombocytopenia symptom relief to different levels (≥50×10^9/L; ≥75×10^9/L; ≥100×10^9/L).
  • Platelet peak
    • Time Frame: Up to 36 days
    • Based on the results of routine blood tests, observe the peak value of platelets and record the peak time after treatment.
  • AE
    • Time Frame: Up to 36 days
    • All adverse events related to rhTPO observed through various tests (including blood routine, liver function, pregnancy test, electrocardiogram, etc.)
  • Immunogenicity of rhTPO
    • Time Frame: At Day 1, Day 14, Day 36
    • Detect the presence of anti-rhTPO antibodies through the subject’s blood sample
  • Cmax
    • Time Frame: Up to 36 days
    • Detect the blood concentration of rhTPO by the subject’s blood sample
  • AUC
    • Time Frame: Up to 36 days
    • Detect the blood concentration of rhTPO by the subject’s blood sample, then calculate the area under the curve (AUC)
