Malignant pleural effusion can occur in up to half of the patients with metastatic disease. It can cause shortness of breath to patients and so far there is no protocol on its management.
The study is looking at patients with malignant pleural effusion and aims to identify its prognostic factors.
Pleural fluid and blood analysis will be performed as in the standard of care and results will be collected at the start of diagnosis. This will not affect subsequent management plan. Patients' disease course will be followed up and progress data will be collected. Data will then be analysed to identify relevant prognostic factors.
