Twenty four patients with histologically documented UIP/IPF were followed till death (uncensored n = 8) or reporting of the study (censored n = 16). (A) Kaplan-Meier survival curve for MRC is shown. Patients with higher MRC scores experienced shorter survival (p = 0.009). Kaplan-Meier survival curves for both Brompton (B) and Michigan (C) scores are shown. No significant correlation was found between the two subgroups and survival.
