Seems like its more useful for people who have gone through chemotherapy and have low platelets due to bone marrow issues. I wouldn't do a platelet transfusion for ITP so probably the IPF% wouldn't be that useful. I haven't seen those lab numbers but since I'm on NPlate it would likely be high because of lots of new platelets. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20456520
