Gentian hosted the Educational Workshop “Plasma Calprotectin: a promising early biomarker for diagnosis of bacterial infections and sepsis.”. The workshop was well attended, and two speakers were invited, Dr. Jordi Rello, MD, PhD (Spain) and Dr. Toralph Ruge, MD, PhD (Sweden). Dr. Aleksandra Havelka, PhD (Sweden) presented Dr. Ruge’s talk.
The talks discussed calprotectin and other biomarkers’ role in diagnosis of severe infections and sepsis. The presentations showed studies and results supporting the ability of calprotectin to discriminate patients with acute infections from patients with other states of inflammatory responses, including patients with heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma presented in the emergency department setting.
