Sepsis is a rapidly progressing condition associated with high morbidity and mortality. There is a need to find strong and reliable markers that can serve to stratify patients and alert clinicians to impending complications. The primary objective of this study is to find molecular patterns in blood of the patients at early stage of disease that can be predictive of late clinical outcome.
