Molecular testing for detection of in vitro infectivity of plasma pools contaminated with B19 virus.

Abstract

B19 virus can be transmitted by contaminated blood or blood products. Recent observations, in healthy volunteers, suggest that active B19 infection can follow the administration of plasma pools with a concentration > or =10(7) genome equivalents/ml (geq/ml) of B19 DNA. However, patients receiving batches with levels of virus DNA lower than 10(4) geq/ml do… (More)
