D-dimer in Body Fluids

Here is a note from the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science Consumer Web Forum: What is the normal value of D-dimer in pleural or peritoneal fluids. I know the normal range of D-dimer in the blood is less than 250 ng/mL D-Dimer Units but what about other body fluids? Thank you.

I have found no reference to D-dimer assays in body fluids except for two primary research publications that record coagulation components in tumor-related exudates. Do any of our participants have any experience with this?

I dont think, that any ethics committee would approve the study of human pleural or peritoneal fluids collection in order to establish normal ranges for D-dimer in healthy volunteers. Some research studies were done in order to establish D-dimer values in CSF:

Rapid differential diagnosis between subarachnoid hemorrhage and traumatic lumbar puncture by D-dimer assay,

Procoagulant phospholipids and tissue factor activity in cerebrospinal fluid from patients with intracerebral haemorrhage,
