Predictability of biomarkers in diagnosis of neonatal sepsis: a cross sectional study
International Journal of Contemporary Pediatrics
There is lack of sensitive and specific markers for diagnosis of early neonatal sepsis. Procalcitonin and CRP are known sensitive marker of sepsis and CRP is known to be affected by other independent variables. Hence this study was conducted to compare their predictability for diagnosis of early neonatal sepsis and to assess the effect of variables on them. Methods: It is a cross sectional study.
