Thrombopoietin mimetics

Thrombopoietin mimetics are drugs that considerably increase platelet production by stimulating the receptor for the hormone thrombopoietin; Romiplastin and Eltrombopag are examples.[1] Thrombopoietin mimetics are a type of thrombopoietic agents. There has been a development of a registry of pregnant patients that were treated with these drugs.[2]
