In brief: Yes
Supression to bone marrow resulting in anemia, low white blood cells, low platelet ( Rituxan (rituximab) ) - is one of the most common possible adverse events of chemotherapy= severity of problem will depend on the type of chemo.
Some biological therapy may or may not cause thrombocytopenia.
