PURPOSE Procalcitonin is a new marker of severity of nonviral, in particular, bacterial infections. In respect of sepsis its site of production remains unknown. This study was carried out to determine whether subsets of human leukocytes contain procalcitonin. MATERIALS AND METHODS Blood samples of 17 patients who had demonstrated various degrees of serum procalcitonin levels on the day before evaluation were analyzed for serum procalcitonin by immunoluminometry and for intracellular reaction… CONTINUE READING
