Background: Genetic risk factors are implicated in the etiology and pathogenesis of immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Platelet endothelial aggregation receptor 1 (PEAR1) plays an important role in regulating megakaryopoiesis and thrombopoiesis. rs12041331 and rs12566888 single-nucleotide polymorphisms of PEAR1 are associated with megakaryocyte differentiation and platelet function. Materials and Methods: To conduct this study, 68 peripheral blood samples of patients with ITP (56 acute and 12 chronic) were collected. The amplification refractory mutation system-polymerase chain reaction (ARMS-PCR) was used to detection of rs12041331 and rs12566888 PEAR1 polymorphisms. Results: Statistically significant differences were not seen between rs12041331 and rs12566888 genotypes in acute and chronic groups (P = 0.778, P = 0.844). The frequency of rs12041331 AG/AA genotypes and the rs12566888 GT genotype was more in acute ITP patients; on the other hand, the rs12566888 TT genotype was more in the chronic group. The highest platelet counts and platelet distribution width (PDW) were related to the rs12041331 AG allele. GT and TT of rs12566888 had more PDW and platelet count, respectively. Mean platelet volume values between alleles of both the polymorphisms were constant and did not differ much. In general, no statistically significant differences were observed between genotypes of polymorphisms and platelet parameters. Conclusions: There was no association between rs12041331 and rs12566888 with platelet parameters in ITP patients and the severity of this disease. Further investigation with a larger size is recommended.
