OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether plasma concentrations of procalcitonin (PCT), interleukin-6 (IL-6), protein complement 3a (C3a), leukocyte elastase (elastase), and the C-reactive protein (CRP) determined directly after the clinical onset of sepsis or systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) discriminate between patients suffering from sepsis or SIRS and predict the outcome of these patients. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Medical intensive care unit at a university hospital… CONTINUE READING
