Can neutrophil responses in very low birth weight infants predict the organisms responsible for late-onset bacterial or fungal sepsis?


Objective:To examine neutrophil counts and various neutrophil indices in preterm very low birth weight (VLBW) newborn infants (birth weight <1500 g) with culture-proven late-onset sepsis to determine whether the neutrophil responses could predict the responsible infectious agent.Study Design:Neutrophil parameters were examined during episodes of culture… (More)
