Delayed versus initial cytomegalovirus prophylaxis after kidney transplantation
from Physician's Weekly
It is recommended to start cytomegalovirus prophylaxis within ten days of solid organ transplant, if indicated. The purpose of this retrospective study was to determine the effects of early versus delayed (<72 hours versus > 72 hours after transplant) CMV prophylaxis in kidney and kidney/pancreas transplant recipients transplanted between June 2014-January 2017. The primary endpoint was incidence of CMV infection within one year.
