Abstract

BackgroundThe aim of this study was to investigate and compare the efficacy of the new leukocyte parameters mean neutrophil and monocyte volume (MNV, MMV), conductivity (MNC, MMC), scattering (MNS, MMS) and volume distribution width (NDW, MDW) with serum C-reactive protein (CRP), procalcitonin (PC) and interleukin (IL)-6 in the diagnosis of neonatal sepsis.
