High incidence of cytomegalovirus infection after nonmyeloablative stem cell transplantation: potential role of Campath-1H in delaying immune reconstitution.

Abstract:

Nonmyeloablative conditioning is increasingly used for transplantation in a wide range of diseases, but little is known about its impact on the incidence of infections and immune reconstitution. We examined the pattern and outcome of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections monitored by polymerase chain reaction-based assays and treated preemptively in 101 patients following nonmyeloablative conditioning containing in vivo Campath-1H. Fifty-one patients (50%) had a CMV infection at a median of 27 day...
