Four methods to detect IgG antibodies to Epstein-Barr virus in serum samples of aspirate in renal transplant patients were evaluated. Further to technical characteristics, the assays were compared as to sensitivity, specificity and positive and negative predictive value. 100% of specificity was found for all methods whereas sensibility and negative predictive value were different among the different methods.

Abstract

Four methods to detect IgG antibodies to Epstein-Barr virus in serum samples of aspirate in renal transplant patients were evaluated. Further to technical characteristics, the assays were compared as to sensitivity, specificity and positive and negative predictive value. 100% of specificity was found for all methods whereas sensibility and negative predictive value were different among the different methods.
