About IPTN

The International Pediatric Thrombosis Network is a group of pediatric thrombosis experts whose ultimate goal is to improve care of all children with thrombosis worldwide through international research collaboration and education.   

The IPTN is initiated by the Pediatric and Neonatal Hemostasis and Thrombosis Scientific and Standardization Committee of the International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis.

It enables international research collaboration in pediatric thrombosis by facilitating prospective international observational studies using the Throm-PED registry. In addition, the IPTN serves as a platform for the Throm-PED Clinical Trial Network, a network of pediatric thrombosis centers with clinical trial experience and infrastructure to effectively conduct both investigator-initiated academic trials and industry-sponsored trials.
