Charalampos Pierrakos, (ean)*ouis Vincent
"%stract ,ntroduction: -iomarkers can %e useful for identif.in/ or rulin/ out sepsis, identif.in/ patients 'ho ma. %enefit from specific therapies or assessin/ the response to therap.. 0ethods: 1e used an electronic search of the Pu%0ed data%ase usin/ the ke. 'ords 2sepsis3 and 2%iomarker3 to identif. clinical and e4perimental studies 'hich e&aluated a %iomarker in sepsis. Results: 5he search retrie&ed 6670 references co&erin/ 178 different %iomarkers. Conclusions: 0an. %iomarkers ha&e %een e&aluated for use in sepsis. 0ost of the %iomarkers had %een tested clinicall., primaril. as pro/nostic markers in sepsis9 relati&el. fe' ha&e %een used for dia/nosis. :one has sufficient specificit. or sensiti&it. to %e routinel. emplo.ed in clinical practice. PC5 and CRP ha&e %een most 'idel. used, %ut e&en these ha&e limited a%ilit. to distin/uish sepsis from other inflammator. conditions or to predict outcome. ,ntroduction
!epsis is a leadin/ cause of death in criticall. ill patients despite the use of modern anti%iotics and resuscitation therapies ;1<. 5he septic response is an e4tremel. com) ple4 chain of e&ents in&ol&in/ inflammator. and anti) inflammator. processes, humoral and cellular reactions and circulator. a%normalities ;2,6<. 5he dia/nosis of sepsis and e&aluation of its se&erit. is complicated %. the hi/hl. &aria%le and non)specific nature of the si/ns and s.mptoms of sepsis ;4<. #o'e&er, the earl. dia/no) sis and stratification of the se&erit. of sepsis is &er. important, increasin/ the possi%ilit. of startin/ timel. and specific treatment ;5,=<. -iomarkers can ha&e an important place in this pro) cess %ecause the. can indicate the presence or a%sence or se&erit. of sepsis ;7,8<, and can differentiate %acterial from &iral and fun/al infection, and s.stemic sepsis from local infection. $ther potential uses of %iomarkers include roles in pro/nostication, /uidin/ anti%iotic ther) ap., e&aluatin/ the response to therap. and reco&er. from sepsis, differentiatin/ >ram)positi&e from >ram) ne/ati&e microor/anisms as the cause of sepsis, predict) in/ sepsis complications and the de&elopment of or/an d.sfunction ?heart, kidne.s, li&er or multiple or/an d.s) function@. #o'e&er, the e4act role of %iomarkers in the mana/ement of septic patients remains undefined ;A<.
