[Serum biomarkers in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis].


Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the most common of interstitial lung diseases and is characterised by a significant mortality rate. That is way both clinicists and patients are interested to identify factors that may influence outcome of disease. This factors are named biological markers or biomarkers. Their usefulness in diagnostic, monitoring and prognosis of interstitial pneumonia, and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis was estimated in many researches. The most of them was concerned to serum biomarkers, such as surfactant proteins, mucin-connected proteins, Clara cells proteins, cytoceratines and cytokines.
