A nested multiplex PCR assay was designed for the simultaneous detection of Epstein-Barr virus and Toxoplasma gondii DNA from the cerebrospinal fluid of AIDS patients. T. gondii DNA was detected in 8 of 8 patients with Toxoplasma encephalitis and in 0 of 6 patients without toxoplasmosis, and Epstein-Barr virus DNA was found in 9 of 14 patients with central(More)
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) DNA levels were measured by quantitative-competitive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in weekly leukocyte samples from 50 renal transplant recipients, including 23 with symptomatic and 27 with asymptomatic CMV infection. Peak and week 4 CMV DNA levels were higher in symptomatic subjects (P = .07 and .02, respectively). In a logistic(More)
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infectious titers and DNA levels were determined by quantitative shell vial culture and quantitative-competitive PCR with blood samples from 10 renal transplant recipients with active CMV infection. Blood samples were stored at either room temperature or 4 degrees C and were processed at intervals of 0, 6, 24, 48, and 72 h. All samples(More)
