Abstract Background Although impaired myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) recently have been studied in immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), another myeloid-derived cell population signified as M2 macrophages has not been investigated properly in ITP patients. In the present study, we intended to determine the features of circulating M2-like macrophages, to examine its relationship with MDSCs, and to explore their prognostic values in ITP. Methods Peripheral blood mononuclear cells from healthy controls and primary ITP patients were isolated to...
