Forty eight renal transplant recipients were investigated prospectively for evidence of infection with the polyomaviruses BK and JC and cytomegalovirus. An active polyomavirus infection was shown in 31 patients (65%) and cytomegalovirus in 30 (62.5%). Half of the BK and JC virus infections occurred within the first three months after transplantation(More)
OBJECTIVE To follow up and assess the significance of borderline change in cervical smears. DESIGN Retrospective study of women undergoing routine cervical cytological screening in 1981.
