OBJECTIVES: To establish reference values in cord blood of the following new sepsis markers: pro-adrenomedullin (MR-proADM), pro-endothelin (CT-proET-1), and pro-atrial natriuretic peptide (MR-proANP). METHODS: MR-proADM, CT-proET-1, MR-proANP, and procalcitonin (PCT) were measured in cord blood of newborn infants by Time Resolved Amplified Cryptate Emission (TRACE) technology. The inclusion criteria in the control group (n=194) was the absence of any clinical sign or risk factor of sepsis. A group of 73 newborn infants presenting with risk factors of sepsis at delivery was also studied. RESULTS: The median values (reference interval) of CT-proET-1, MR-pro-ADM, and MR-proANP measured in cord blood plasma were 72pmol/L (39-115), 0.84nmol/L (0.5-1.38), and 163pmol/L (76-389), respectively. The PCT reference interval was not significantly different from that previously described in cord blood serum. CONCLUSIONS: The reference intervals established will serve as a starting point for further clinical investigations aimed to elucidate the potential prognostic/diagnostic value of these markers in neonatal sepsis management.
