Need help in planning a study on neonatal septicemia!!


Recommended Posts

We have 60 % non culture proven sepsis in newborns. I doubt that many of them might have viral sepsis. None of the studies from india haveidentified the viral etiology.Hence our aim is to organise a study to find out the other etiologies of neonal sepsis.I need experts help in formulating, diagnosing and proving this.

I request the advice from the learned .



Erode, India

I'd think you could do PCR (on liqour) for at least #1, #2, #4 and #5.

one of my own study from my thesis may give some hints on diagnostics : http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18930808

My suggestion is that you involve your lab and discuss diagnostics with them too. After all, someone will need to do the analyses!

Wish you all best of luck!
