Simplifying Therapy for Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome

Diplomat supports patients throughout treatment.

Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is an autoimmune condition, which means the body’s immune system targets healthy cells.

 

People who have WAS have fewer and smaller platelets — the cells that help your blood clot. This can lead to easy bruising or heavy bleeding.

 

In addition, WAS causes white blood cells not to function properly, which makes it easier for people who have WAS to get infections.

 

Like many autoimmune conditions, WAS is carried on the X chromosome. Because women have two X chromosomes, they are more likely to be carriers of WAS than to have it themselves. Men have one X chromosome, so they are more likely to have WAS.

 

Either way, WAS is very rare. It occurs in somewhere between one and 10 males out of every million. It occurs even less in females.
