Receiver operating characteristic plot analysis of different biomarkers with respect to outcome prediction of sepsis. Patient data on admission were grouped by (a) clinical diagnosis of sepsis according to international guidelines or by (b) circulating procalcitonin (PCT) levels in excess of 1 ng/ml. Sensitivity was calculated in nonsurvivors, and specificity in survivors. APACHE, Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation; CRP, C-reactive protein; PCT, procalcitonin.
