The best strategy for control of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in lung transplant patients is still not determined. The aim of this study was to document the incidence of CMV infection in a cohort of lung transplant recipients under universal prophylaxis with intravenous ganciclovir. All patients received immunosuppressive regimens consisting of(More)
We have determined the number of circulating T, B and natural killer cells in renal transplant recipients in order to detect changes during cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections. Serial blood samples were taken from 61 patients on standard triple immunosuppression therapy (cyclosporin A, azathioprine and prednisone). Using two-color flow cytometry analysis, the(More)
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is the single most frequent infectious complication in renal transplant recipients. The purpose of this study was to analyze the diagnostic efficacy of PCR-RFLP compared to antigenemia for CMV disease (CMVD) in kidney transplant recipients. From November 2001 to February 2002, 19 renal adult transplant recipients were(More)
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is a frequent complication in transplant recipients, causing a high level of morbidity and mortality. We studied 203 consecutive renal transplant recipients performed between January 2000 and December 2001. Patients underwent weekly measurements of CMV pp65 antigen to assess CMV activity from the 4th to the 12th week(More)
