PURPOSE: As a new peptide with angiogenic and pro-fibrogenic features, Urotensin II might play a role in pulmonary fibrosis. We aim to evaluate Urotensin II levels in patients with different extent of pulmonary fibrosis, their associations with fibrosis and other clinical indexes, and predictive value in fibrosis progression.
