Table 4 Procalcitonin and C-reactive protein concentrations and white blood cell count in patients with delayed sepsis

From: Marked increase of procalcitonin after the administration of anti-thymocyte globulin in patients before hematopoietic stem cell transplantation does not indicate sepsis: a prospective study

  1. The dynamics of markers of procalcitonin (PCT) and C-reactive protein (CRP) in patients who developed delayed sepsis on days 7 to 11 after conditioning with anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) were different from the dynamics of increase in PCT and CRP that were observed during ATG conditioning. Dx, days after conditioning; WBC, white blood cell.
