The aims of this study were (1) to assess microbiologic and hematologic findings in neonatal sepsis; (2) to determine whether changes in sE-selectin levels are dependent on gestational age, onset of sepsis, or the bacterium causing the sepsis; (3) to establish the diagnostic utility (sensitivity, specificity, predictive values, and likelihood ratio) of sE-selectin in comparison to commonly used laboratory markers for sepsis (CRP, I/T ratio, total leukocyte count, absolute neutrophil count), both individually and in combination, for early diagnosis of neonatal sepsis; and (4) to test whether sE-selectin levels have any prognostic value in neonatal sepsis.
