Sepsis is a severe public health issue that affects children all around the world. Because the treatment recommendations emphasise early detection, there is interest in identifying sepsis biomarkers, with diagnostic biomarkers receiving the greatest attention. These biomarkers can provide information on the likelihood of a poor sepsis outcome, the risk of sepsis-related organ dysfunction, and subgroups of sepsis patients that share underlying biological traits that may be susceptible to targeted therapeutics [1].
