This poster for the Natural Sciences Poster Session summarizes Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), a rare autoimmune disorder, either inherited or acquired, that produces antibodies affecting the gene ADAMTS13, which causes bleeding and inhibits blood clotting. Symptoms include purple bruising (purpura) and small red dots on the skin, called petechiae. Untreated TTP can lead to damage in the brain, heart and kidneys.
