We read Rannikko et al.'s article about proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) levels in patients with bacteremia with great interest. In these patients PCSK9 levels were increased compared to healthy controls, which is in line with other published data and probably caused by the associated inflammatory response. Interestingly, within the patient cohort, patients with lower PCSK9 levels were more likely to die at day 7, 28 and 90, which was surprising, because in contrast to this Boyd et al. reported that high PCSK9 levels were associated with organ failure in septic patients in the emergency department. It is noteworthy that the genetic function of PCSK9 was not assessed in Rannikko et al.'s study.
