Description

Procalcitonin (PCT) is a biomarker that reacts with high sensitivity and specificity to generalized infection and sepsis. It correlates better than all other existing parameters to the inflammatory activity of the immune system and can be used to diagnose and to monitor severe bacterial infections and sepsis.

Recently, strong evidence supports the reduction of antibiotics using PCT-guided antibiotic stewardship protocols. PCT guidance could help reduce the initial antibiotic prescription rates and also the antibiotic treatment duration.
