Abstract

While a number of individual patient characteristics are associated with survival in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), their incorporation into combined indexes, such as the GAP index, has been shown to increase the predictive capacity. It is unknown whether the predictive capacity of GAP-derived indexes that also include anthropometric and exercise parameters is superior to the original instrument.
