The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for cytomegalovirus (CMV) DNA quantitation provides sensitive and specific data for detecting CMV as well as monitoring the infection and determining the appropriate antiviral strategy. A recently introduced real‐time PCR assay for CMV DNA quantitation was applied on 158 peripheral blood leukocytes (PBLs) from 32 liver‐transplanted patients with CMV asymptomatic infection and correlated with a commercial quantitative end‐point PCR (COBAS AMPLICOR CMV Monitor… Expand
