Neutrophil Phenotypic Profiling and Organ Injury Assessment in Patients With Sepsis

2019-09-30 07:06:52 | BioPortfolio


In this research study we want to learn more about the character of neutrophils that are present in the blood of children with sepsis. Sepsis is a severe type of infection, affecting various parts of the body. Neutrophils are a type of white blood cell that are part of the body's immune system. Even though neutrophils are important in getting rid of germs, they also may be harmful to parts of the body by causing injury in organs in patients with sepsis. Neutrophils can change their character in sepsis. Because of this, it is important for doctors to know what kind of neutrophils are in the blood of children with sepsis so that they can work to develop therapies to prevent these cells from being harmful.

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.

Acute neurological dysfunction during severe SEPSIS in the absence of direct brain infection characterized by systemic inflammation and BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER perturbation.

Blood infection that occurs in an infant younger than 90 days old. Early-onset sepsis is seen in the first week of life and most often appears within 24 hours of birth. Late-onset occurs after 1 week and before 3 months of age.

Test to determine the presence of blood infection (e.g. SEPSIS; BACTEREMIA).

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.
