Interest of Eosinopia in the Diagnosis of Infection in the Emergency Department

Brief description of study

Several studies have described the interest of eosinopenia as a marker of infection in internal medicine or in intensive care units. Eosinopenia is an inexpensive and easily accessible biological marker of sepsis. Retrospective work in the adult emergency departments of Strasbourg University Hospitals has shown the good specificity of this biological sign for the diagnosis of infection. Our work aims to confirm the results by a more meaningful study.

Main objective: Evaluation of the interest of eosinopenia in the diagnosis of bacterial infection in ED.

Methodology: inclusion of all patients with criteria for bacterial infection in ED, inclusion of an equivalent number of uninfected control patients.

Duration : 12 months Multicentric prospective study 6 centers : Strasbourg, Hpital Nord Franche comt, Slestat, Wissembourg, Colmar, Mulhouse

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT03467672
