Combined Biomarkers Predict Acute Mortality Among Critically Ill Patients With Suspected Sepsis

Combined Biomarkers Predict Acute Mortality Among Critically Ill Patients With Suspected Sepsis

Combined biomarkers predict risk for 14-day and total mortality among subjects with suspected sepsis. Serum amyloid P and tissue plasminogen activator demonstrated the best discriminatory ability in this cohort. Fourteen-day mortality was 12.9%, and total in-hospital mortality was 29.5%. Serum amyloid P was significantly lower (4/4 timepoints) and tissue plasminogen activator significantly higher (3/4 timepoints) in the 14-day mortality group, and the same pattern held for total in-hospital mortality (Wilcoxon p ≤ 0.046 for all timepoints). We enrolled 139 subjects who met two or more systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) criteria and received new broad-spectrum antibacterial therapy.
