Procalcitonin (PCT) is a biomarker used for the diagnosis of bacterial infection and sepsis. PCT is a prohormone for calcitonin, and is secreted by various cell types in response to infection and inflammation. PCT is used in a variety of settings, including primary care, emergency room and intensive care, where PCT can be used to guide and monitor antibiotic treatment. PCT serum concentrations are elevated in clinically relevant bacterial infections and continue to rise with the increasing severity of the disease. Rapidly declining PCT values indicate that infection is under control.
