The correlation of plasma BKPyV DNA load (log10 copies/ml), as well as LT, and VP1-specific CD4+ and CD8+ T cell responses measured by intracellular cytokine assay of each patient; patient number 1, 2, 4, 7 and 8 who underwent dynamic measurements at additional time points were also shown. Those are expressed as the percentage of IFN-γ cells related to the percentage of cells in the total population. The horizontal bar indicates the start of intervention as indicated; MPA, mycophenolic acid; TAC, tacrolimus; CsA, cyclosporine A; IVIG, intravenous immunoglobulin
