PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: A prior study suggested activated intravascular coagulation disturbance occurs in acute exacerbation (AE) of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Early recognition of patients with increased risk of developing AE or preclinical AE may be imperative. The aim of this study was to investigate whether abnormal serum D-dimer level (greater than or equal to 0.5 mcg/mL) can predict subsequent AE or recognize preclinical AE.
