Sepsis is the body's systemic inflammatory response to infection and can progress to severe sepsis, septic shock and ultimately multiple organ failure.
Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment of severe sepsis is vital to improve the patient's chance of survival.
Heparin Binding Protein is a new marker which has been shown to be useful in identifying patients on admission to the Emergency Department who are at risk of developing severe sepsis with circulatory failure.

Published data suggests that Heparin Binding Protein exhibits superior performance over existing biomarkers for the assessment of severe sepsis.
Axis-Shield will launch the first assay for measuring Heparin Binding Protein in December 2012.
