A rapid immunocytochemical assay for CMV detection in peripheral blood of organ-transplanted patients in clinical practice.

Abstract

This study describes clinical experience with a rapid method for diagnosis of cytomegalovirus infection in organ-transplanted patients, based on the detection of CMV-specific antigens in peripheral polymorphonuclear cells with a mixture of monoclonal antibodies. This CMV-pp65 assay was formerly called the "CMV immediate early antigen assay." A group of 180… (More)
