Procalcitonin (PCT) is a superior biomarker of systemic bacterial infections
Although the role of the measurement of inflammatory cytokines, such as procalcitonin, interleukin 6 (IL-6), and C-reactive protein, which are involved in acute and chronic inflammatory responses in addition to the measurement of white cell count and bilirubin for diagnosing acute appendicitis, has been investigated in few studies, the results have varied with no consensus about the best test (6,7).
