Abstract

Background: To analyze the behavior of circulating von Willebrand factor antigen (vWf:Ag) in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Patients and Methods: Pre-surgical vWf:Ag levels were measured in 64 patients with histologically diagnosed NSCLC compared to 64 patients with benign pulmonary diseases, as well as 64 age- and sex-matched controls. Results: Patients with NSCLC had mean vWf:Ag concentrations lower than either controls or benign patients (p=0.001). CEA was the only variable predictive of low vWf:Ag levels (p
