Abstract

Objectives:

To study the role of serum procalcitonin as a diagnostic biomarker in sepsis and to compare it with other sepsis markers (IL-6, CRP) in patients of suspected sepsis.

Materials and Methods:

A total of 80 patients were included in this study from ICU and each patient was investigated for serum Procalcitonin, Interleukin-6 and C-reactive protein levels by ELISA along with blood cultures by BacT/Alert system.

Result:

Procalcitonin along with CRP is a better diagnostic tool for sepsis.

KEYWORDS:

Blood culture; CRP; IL-6; procalcitonin; sepsis
