Keywords Acute on chronic liver failure; Bacterial infection; Score
Core Tip This is a retrospective study to evaluate the diagnostic value of widely used biomarkers for infection, including procalcitonin (PCT), white blood cell, proportion of neutrophils (N%), and C-reactive protein (CRP) for bacterial infection in ACLF. The results showed that all of the four parameters did not perform well in ACLF, with no significant difference being found among them. Then we developed a novel scoring system comprised of N%, PCT and CRP which demonstrated a higher accuracy for bacterial infection in ACLF than the indicators used alone. Further validation of this scoring system is required in prospective studies.
