Novel Biomarkers in Sepsis

Elevated levels of PCT serve as a valuable biomarker in sepsis, aiding in the early diagnosis and monitoring of bacterial infections, and guiding therapeutic decisions. CRP is a commonly used biomarker for inflammation, and its levels are frequently elevated in sepsis, providing clinicians with an indication of the severity of the immune response. Elevated lactate levels are associated with tissue hypoxia and serve as a crucial biomarker in sepsis, aiding in the assessment of organ dysfunction and prognosis. Soluble Triggering Receptor Expressed on Myeloid Cells-1 (sTREM-1): Elevated sTREM-1 levels are indicative of bacterial infections, making it a promising biomarker for identifying sepsis of infectious origin. Endothelial Biomarkers (E-selectin, VCAM-1): Increased expression of endothelial biomarkers reflects endothelial dysfunction in sepsis, contributing to the understanding of the pathophysiology and progression of the condition.
