Table 2 Comparison of CMV load at the onset of infection between patients with and without CMV disease

From: CMV infection of liver transplant recipients: comparison of antigenemia and molecular biology assays

  Mean Min-max Mean Min-max p a)
Antigenemia pp65 b) 7 1-31 17 1-40 n.s.
CMV monitor c) 4.2 × 103 4.3 × 102 - 1.6 × 104 7.2 × 103 9.4 × 102 - 1.8 × 104 n.s.
  1. a) p = significance level for the difference between patients with and without disease, according to the Mann-Whitney U test; n.s. = not significant b) antigenemia results are given as positive cells per 50,000 cells c) CMV monitor results are given as copies/mL
