Understanding Mini Transplant Panel in Varanasi
What is Mini Transplant Panel in Varanasi?
Target organisms: Adenovirus, Cytomegalovirus (CMV), and Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV)
Mini Transplant Panel test is a rapid multiplex PCR-based test to perform qualitative detection of the above viruses in the blood sample. These three viruses are major causes of morbidity and mortality in immunosuppressed individuals including the patients who have undergone transplants. EBV/CMV infects at least 90% of the world’s population and can persist in a latent (dormant) form after the first infection. Reactivation can occur years later, particularly under conditions of immunosuppression. These viral infections may result in nonspecific or overlapping sign and symptoms in transplant patients, and hence this test helps doctors to screen for all three viruses at one go, which aids in clinical management, allowing early intervention.
