We evaluated the evidence about whether platelet transfusions given to prevent bleeding in people with lower platelet counts (for example 5 x 109/L or below) were as effective and safe as the current standard (10 x 109/L or below), or whether higher platelet count levels (20 x 109/L or below, 30 x 109/L or below, or 50 x 109/L or below) were safer than the current standard (10 x 109/L or below). Our target population was people with blood cancers (for example leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma) who were receiving intensive (myelosuppressive) chemotherapy treatments or stem cell transplantation.
