Although human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) has been considered an important opportunistic and potentially fatal pathogen for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), the clinical significance of HHV-6 reactivation remains controversial. In this study, we monitored HHV-6 DNAemia in 72 consecutive allogeneic HSCT recipients by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction. A total of 680 peripheral blood specimens were collected from the recipients before HSCT or at weekly… CONTINUE READING
