We are pleased to announce that the Ohio State University TTP/aHUS Research Program will again
be holding a patient support group meeting on the campus of the Ohio State University Medical
Center. The goal of the meeting is to provide a forum for patients and their family/friends to
discuss on an informal basis any questions related to their previous diagnosis and treatment for
thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) or atypical HUS, a condition closely related to TTP.
We will also be presenting some of the research that has been ongoing at Ohio State that has
involved many of our patients, and has benefited many of our patients. Members of the Ohio State
Research program will be present to help facilitate discussions and answer any questions that may
Please note that the meeting will take place at a different location. The meeting will be held
on Tuesday June 3rd at 5:00 pm, in Room 100 on the first floor of Starling Loving Hall, 320
W. 10th Ave. in Columbus, Ohio. Starling Loving Hall is located across the street from the
James Cancer Hospital. Parking passes will be available that will allow you to exit from Parking
Garages without expense to you. An informal dinner will be served beginning at 5:30pm, with an
