Once-Daily Oral Avatrombopag Tablets Used in Subjects With Chronic Liver Diseases and Thrombocytopenia Prior to Elective Surgical or Diagnostic Procedures

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of once-daily Oral avatrombopagin subjects with chronic liver diseases and thrombocytopenia prior to elective surgical or diagnostic procedures, to evaluate the safety of short-term administration of avatrombopag and to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of E5501.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
