PATHFAST™ Presepsin - 2

Neonatal sepsis Neonatal sepsis, especially late-onset sepsis (LOS) continues to be a major source of morbidity and mortality in very- low-birthweight infants (VLBW <1500 g) or pre-terms. The International Pediatric Sepsis Consensus Conference defined sepsis as “the systemic inflammatory response syndrome in the presence or as a result of a suspected or proven infection” (1). Major causes of infection include bacteria such as coagulase-negative Staphylococci and multiple other aggressive pathogens, such as the Klebsiella-Enterobacter-Serratia group, Pseudomonas, and Candida species....

PATHFAST™ Presepsin - 3

Presepsin in neonatal sepsis (LOS and EOS) The diagnostic validity of Presepsin in neonatal sepsis has been evaluated in numerous clinical studies. Pugni et al. (12) enrolled 684 healthy neonates (484 born at term and 200 preterm) for evaluation of reference ranges for Presepsin. Presepsin median value in term infants was 604 pg/mL whereas in preterm infants the Presepsin median value was slightly higher (620 pg/mL). The normal reference ranges of Presepsin observed were higher than those seen in healthy adults. The Presepsin level was not affected by gender, ethnicity, mode of delivery,...
