BACKGROUND Urine is an important source for the detection of infections caused by CMV in stem cell transplant patients. Currently, there is no agreement about the type of urine specimen. In order to investigate which is the better specimen type for quantitative detection of CMV, we compared the results from urine supernatant and sediment from the same patients. METHODS Seventy urine specimens were collected from patients with hematological disorders or solid tumors. After performing shell… CONTINUE READING
