An Algorithm Driven Sepsis Prediction Biomarker

2017-01-11 03:38:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A sepsis early warning predictive algorithm, InSight, has been developed and validated on a large, diverse patient cohort. In this prospective study, the ability of InSight to predict severe sepsis patients is investigated. Specifically, InSight is compared with a well established severe sepsis detector in the UCSF electronic health record (EHR).

Clinical Trials [2782 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Alterations of Immunologic Mediators During Severe Sepsis

Severe sepsis induces significant changes in expression of insulin- and toll-like receptors, cytokines, markers of apoptosis, and activation of t- and b-lymphocytes.

Neutropenic Fever, Inflammatory Markers and Sepsis in Haematological Patients

The aim of this study is to find out whether inflammation markers including cardiac markers have predictive value in evaluation of pathogenesis of sepsis in neutropenic haematological pati...

HMGB1 in ICU-survivors

Is HMGB1 (High Mobility Group Box 1) elevated in sepsis patients for weeks after recovery from severe sepsis/septic shock, similar to what has been observed in mice? Do patients recovering...

Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of BMS-936559 in Severe Sepsis

The purpose of this study is to determine whether BMS-936559 is safe and has the desired pharmacologic activity in patients who have severe sepsis.

Investigation of the Efficacy and Safety of Drotrecogin Alfa (Activated) in Pediatric Severe Sepsis

The purposes of this study are to determine: 1. Whether drotrecogin alfa (activated) helps children with severe sepsis survive their condition more often or recover faster than chi...

Use of explicit ICD9-CM codes to identify adult severe sepsis: impacts on epidemiological estimates.

Severe sepsis is a challenge for healthcare systems, and epidemiological studies are essential to assess its burden and trends. However, there is no consensus on which coding strategy should be used t...

Clinical and microbiological features of maternal sepsis: a retrospective study.

Identifying pregnant women with sepsis is challenging because diagnostic clinical and laboratory criteria overlap with normal pregnant physiologic indices. Our primary study aim was to describe clinic...

Effectiveness and safety of procalcitonin evaluation for reducing mortality in adults with sepsis, severe sepsis or septic shock.

Serum procalcitonin (PCT) evaluation has been proposed for early diagnosis and accurate staging and to guide decisions regarding patients with sepsis, severe sepsis and septic shock, with possible red...

Vitamin D Deficiency in Human and Murine Sepsis.

Vitamin D deficiency has been implicated as a pathogenic factor in sepsis and ICU mortality but causality of these associations has not been demonstrated. To determine whether sepsis and severe sepsis...

Mass spectrometry for the discovery of biomarkers of sepsis.

Sepsis is a serious medical condition that occurs in 30% of patients in intensive care units (ICUs). Early detection of sepsis is key to prevent its progression to severe sepsis and septic shock, whic...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.

The presence of fungi circulating in the blood. Opportunistic fungal sepsis is seen most often in immunosuppressed patients with severe neutropenia or in postoperative patients with intravenous catheters and usually follows prolonged antibiotic therapy.

A demyelinating condition affecting the PONS and characterized clinically by an acute progressive QUADRIPLEGIA; DYSARTHRIA; DYSPHAGIA; and alterations of consciousness. Pathologic features include prominent demyelination in the central PONS with sparing of axons and neurons. This condition is usually associated with systemic disorders such as HYPONATREMIA; chronic ALCOHOLISM; LIVER FAILURE; severe BURNS; malignant NEOPLASMS; hemorrhagic PANCREATITIS; HEMODIALYSIS; and SEPSIS. The rapid medical correction of hyponatremia has been cited as a cause of this condition. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1125-6)

Sepsis associated with HYPOTENSION or hypoperfusion despite adequate fluid resuscitation. Perfusion abnormalities may include, but are not limited to LACTIC ACIDOSIS; OLIGURIA; or acute alteration in mental status.

A genus of gram-negative, anaerobic bacteria in the family Desulfovibrionaceae. It was originally recovered from infections in patients with gangrenous and PERFORATED APPENDICITIS. It is also associated with ABSCESS; BACTEREMIA; and BILIARY TRACT sepsis.
