Simplifying Therapy for XLP

Diplomat supports patients throughout treatment.

X-linked lymphoproliferative disease (XLP) affects the immune system, causing it not to work the way it should. It’s a genetic condition that’s carried on the X chromosome. Because males only have one X chromosome, they can get XLP. Females can be carriers of XLP, but they don’t get it themselves.

 

Most people who have XLP won’t normally have any symptoms. It starts to cause issues when the person also gets infected with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a common virus that will affect most people in their lifetimes.

 

When someone with XLP gets EBV, their body responds by creating far too many immune cells. This can trigger a condition called hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), which can put patients at risk of getting hepatitis and lymphoma. It can even be fatal.

 

XLP is very rare. Only about one in every million males has it. Although it’s a genetic condition, it might not be diagnosed until well into childhood.
