    BACKGROUND: Sepsis is an important cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality worldwide. Diagnosis and treatment of neonatal sepsis relies on clinical judgment and interpretation of nonspecific laboratory tests. In a prospective cohort, we measured inflammatory cytokines as a potential biomarker for neonatal sepsis.

  3. Prognosis for Neonatal Sepsis. The fatality rate is 2 to 4 times higher in LBW infants than in full-term infants. The overall mortality rate of early-onset sepsis is 3 to 40% (that of early-onset GBS infection is 2 to 10%) and of late-onset sepsis is 2 to 20% (that of late-onset GBS is about 2%).

    Jun 13, 2019 · Historically, the treatment approach for suspected neonatal sepsis has included early aggressive initiation of antibiotics because of the neonate’s relative immunosuppression. Because early signs of sepsis in the newborn are nonspecific, diagnostic studies are often ordered and treatment initiated in neonates before the presence of sepsis has ...

    Aug 20, 2013 · Conclusions. Neonatal infection in the first week of life is associated with maternal infection and colonization. High-quality studies, particularly from settings with high neonatal mortality, are needed to determine whether targeting treatment of maternal infections or colonization, and/or prophylactic antibiotic treatment of newborns of high risk mothers, may prevent a significant proportion ...
