Abstract

Objectives. Regular screening for the BK virus (BKV) is recommended for early intervention in renal transplant patients. Identification of predictors for the development of BK viremia would improve their monitoring. We performed a retrospective study investigating whether the lymphocyte count may be a predictor of BKV development in renal transplant patients.
