Epstein-Barr virus load monitoring: its role in the prevention and management of post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease.

Abstract

The Epstein-Barr virus load in the peripheral blood at the time of diagnosis of post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) is elevated 1000- to 10,000-fold compared to the level detected in normal latency. With the use of quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR), changes in the viral load over time can be measured with a two- to fourfold… (More)
