Abstract

The CMV Brite antigenemia kit was compared with culture and an established cytomegalovirus pp65 antigenemia assay (CMV AG). Of 300 clinical specimens tested, 92 were positive by CMV Brite, 83 were positive by CMV AG, and 34 were positive by culture. Discrepancies could be attributed to anticytomegalovirus therapy or low-level antigenemia.
