Starting early antibiotic therapy is crucial for treatment success. But incidence of sepsis, in neonate treated for suspected sepsis, is low, exposing in this case not necessary of this babies to antibiotics with all of sides effects (high rate of late sepsis, mortality, and high cost). Purpose To evaluate the most sensitive marker in early diagnosis of neonatal sepsis or rule out early neonatal sepsis in suspected early-onset sepsis neonates (EOS). Material and Methods This single-center, prospective, randomized intervention study conducted in a tertiary neonatal intensive care unit, janary 2011-december 2014. All neonate with suspected sepsis were randomly assigned either to standard treatment based on conventional laboratory parameters (standard group) or to PCT-guided treatment (PCT group).
