Fahim, A., Crooks, M., Wilmot, R., Campbell, A. P., Morice, A., & Hart, S. (2012). Serum carcinoembryonic antigen correlates with severity of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Respirology : official journal of the Asian Pacific Society of Respirology, 17(8), 1247-1252. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1440-1843.2012.02231.x

Background and objective: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the commonest idiopathic interstitial pneumonia and carries a poor prognosis. Epidemiological evidence suggests that patients with IPF have an increased risk of developing lung cancer....

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis is Associated with Circulating Antiepithelial Antibodies (2012)
Journal Article
Fahim, A., Chong, M. C., Crooks, M. G., & Hart, S. P. (2012). Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis is Associated with Circulating Antiepithelial Antibodies. Lung, 190(4), 451-458. doi:10.1007/s00408-012-9390-z

PurposeIdiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a restrictive fibrotic lung disease of uncertain etiology. Alveolar epithelial injury may be one of the inciting triggers in the pathogenesis of this disorder. We hypothesized that circulating antibodies...
