Usefulness of presepsin (PSP) for assessment of sepsis in leukopeniс patients (pts)

PSP (sCD14-ST) is a soluble N-terminal fragment of the protein CD14. Recently PSP
considered as an early marker of sepsis. However, most of the studies were performed
at pts without leukopenia. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether PSP is a useful
biomarker for assessing the severity of sepsis and organ dуsfunction in leukopenic pts
with septic shock (SS).
