Biomarkers in sepsis
We have established a biobank for future research with biological samples from well-defined acutely admitted patients with presumed infection. All were adults who had a blood culture test performed at admission. There are two cohorts, cohort 2009 and cohort 2014.
Biomarker research in sepsis is dependent on biological samples from well characterized patients. Often patients are highly selected with risk of bias. We therefore decided to establish this biobank. The intention is that biobank related biomarker results should be combined with clinical data obtained through local hospital or national health registries.
Description of the cohort
Adults with a blood culture test done at hospital admission to the acute medical ward (2009, AMA and 2014, FAM).
Data and biological material
Plasma and blood cells (for DNA analyses). In addition, clinical and laboratory data has been collected for cohort 2009
