  • Understanding Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia (GT)

    Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia (GT) is an extremely rare, autosomal recessive blood disorder. In GT, the platelets lack GPIIb/IIIa, preventing fibrinogen bridging and significantly prolonging bleeding time. This condition can be life-threatening. Symptoms are similar to Bernard-Soulier Syndrome, with carriers experiencing bruising, nosebleeds, and bleeding in the mouth and gums.

  • Our Mission & History

    Glanzmann's Research Foundation is dedicated to:

    • Increasing awareness of Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia

    Our board members, individuals from across the U.S. who have been personally affected by Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia, are the backbone of Glanzmann's Research Foundation. Meet these passionate advocates here!
