A new discovery may be the key to stopping shortages of these vital blood-clotting cells that can represent the difference between life and death, says a study. The finding from the University of Virginia School of Medicine also could offer big benefits for premature babies, opening the door to new treatments for a serious condition called neonatal thrombocytopenia that affects up to 30 percent of babies in neonatal intensive care units.

The researchers identified a "master switch" that they may be able to manipulate to overcome the obstacles that have prevented doctors from producing platelets in large quantities outside the body.
