Trial Information

Utility of Serum and Bronchoalveolar Fluid Urokinase Like Plasminogen Activator Levels in Defining Patients at Higher Risk of Hemoptysis.


This is a prospective observational study looking at some coagulation factors in individuals
with lung cancer. We are looking at BAL and plasma. We would like to see if there is a
difference in the levels and if this is the reason behind the higher incidence of hemoptysis
in patients with lung cancer.


Inclusion Criteria:



- Any patient scheduled to undergo bronchoscopy

Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients with evidence of coagulopathy either iatrogenic or the result of disease
process - coagulopathy defined as elevated prothrombin time, activated partial
thromboplastin time or platelet count less than 100,000

- Patients not scheduled to undergo bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL)
