Table 2. Correlation between CMV-viremia and urine protein pattern

CMV-ViremiaNormal Pattern (n = 19)aRejection Pattern (n = 21)bP-value
a Consists of 18 patients from the stable transplant group plus 1 patient from the acute clinical rejection group.
b Consists of 4 patients from the stable transplant group plus 17 patients from the acute clinical rejection group.
c CMV-PCR was not performed for the following reasons: CMV sero-negativity of both donor and recipient (n = 2); test was not ordered (n = 3); or only CMV pp65-antigen was evaluated (n = 1; patient tested negative).
d CMV-PCR was not performed for the following reasons: CMV sero-negativity of both donor and recipient (n = 3); test was not ordered (n = 3); or only CMV pp65-antigen was evaluated (n = 1; patient tested negative).
