The incidence of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection was established, using laboratory criteria, in 298 patients receiving 362 renal allografts (164/298 = 55%). The incidence of CMV infection did not differ between azathioprine/prednisolone-treated and cyclosporine-treated patients (55% vs. 57% NS). The use of antithymocyte globulin (ATG) increased the incidence of CMV infection (78% vs. 51%: P less than 0.01). Donor and recipient CMV status, known for 116 allografts, did not correlate with the… CONTINUE READING
