Eighty-two patients were examined within 12 months after transplantation to determine the presence of BK virus (BKV) in the blood and urine of allogeneic kidney transplant recipients. Plasma and urine BKV DNA levels were quantified. A higher risk for BK nephropathy was established in patients with a high level of BK viruria and viremia for a long time.
