    To help diagnose sepsis if you are critically ill and to help determine your risk of growing in to severe sepsis and septic shock; to help find out serious bacterial infections and to distinguish between bacterial and non-bacterial conditions; to help guide antibiotic treatment.

Your doctor may recommend this test for you if you show signs of  systemic or severe bacterial infection and/or sepsis.

Procalcitonin is a substance produced by many types of cells in the body, often in response to bacterial infections and also in case of tissue injury. The level of procalcitonin in the blood can increase significantly in case of systemic bacterial infections and sepsis. This test measures procalcitonin levels in the blood.

Reference Values Of Procalcitonin Serum

In children older than 72 hours and in adults, levels <0.15 ng/mL make a diagnosis of significant bacterial infection unlikely. -Procalcitonin (ProCT) between 0.15 and 2.0 ng/mL do not exclude an infection, because localized infections (without systemic signs) may be associated with such low levels.

Interpretations

Low levels of procalcitonin in a seriously ill person may indicate a low risk of developing sepsis and progression to severe sepsis and/or septic shock but do not exclude it.

High levels are indicative of a higher likelihood of sepsis and also progression to severe sepsis. High levels may also be seen in people with serious bacterial infections, such as meningitis.

Moderate fluctuations may be because of a non-infectious condition or due to an early infection and, along with other findings, should be checked carefully. They may also be seen in children with kidney infections.

Decreasing procalcitonin levels over a period of time, when initially detected as high can indicate a recovery from infections or in case of directed treatment it could mean a treatment response.
