BACKGROUND Neutrophil CD64 expression is widely reported as an efficacious biomarker to differentiate infected patients from other non-infected patients. This meta-analysis was conducted to comprehensively and quantitatively summarize the accuracy of neutrophil CD64 in the early diagnosis of bacterial infection. METHODS A systematic review of related studies was conducted, and the sensitivity, specificity, and other data about the accuracy of CD64 expression on neutrophils were pooled using… CONTINUE READING
