AIMS An elevated plasma D-dimer level indicates the activation of coagulation and fibrinolysis. In the present study, we investigated the association of pre-treatment haemostatic parameters (D-dimer, fibrinogen and prothrombin fragment 1+2) with clinicopathological parameters and outcome in patients with lung cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Plasma levels of D-dimer and other parameters were measured in 78 evaluable patients with lung cancer (60 non-small cell lung cancers, 18 small cell lung… CONTINUE READING
