BACKGROUND Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Recipients of T-cell-depleted (TCD) transplants may be more susceptible to CMV infection as a result of the reduction in transferred T cell immunity. We sought to determine the effect of prior donor and patient CMV exposure on the incidence of CMV infection after TCD allogeneic HSCT. METHODS We retrospectively examined CMV antigen… CONTINUE READING
