Core Tip Polyomavirus-associated nephropathy is a leading cause of kidney transplant failure. A systematic screening and treatment protocol in line with current international guideline was evaluated. Our results showed that despite early diagnosis and prompt intervention, graft-related outcomes for patients with BK-virus infection remain substantially inferior to control. We confirmed that initial viral load ≥ 10000 copies/mL is highly predictive of nephropathy. New putative risk factors for BK-viremia and nephropathy were also identified. Properly designed large multi-centre studies are warranted to further investigate individual susceptibility to BK-virus infection and validate alternative antiviral therapies.
