HCMV Diagnostic Kit
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV), also called cell inclusion body virus, is a double helix DNA virus and belongs to β genus of herpes virus family, which causes infected cells to enlarge and has a huge intranuclear inclusion. The ways of infection of HCMV is mainly through contact, blood transfusion, intrauterine and birth canal, and the infections are commonly found in fetus, newborns, pregnant women, etc. If the pregnant women are infected, it may cause their newborns congenital monstrosity. When the organism immune deficiency or immune system is under inhibitory state, people can be easily infected by HCMV, such as the patients receiving immunosuppressive therapy after transplantation of organ, the patients receiving malignant tumor chemotherapy and AIDS patients, etc. If these patients are infected by HCMV, it usually causes high mortality and serious diseases.
Clinical tests suggest that HCMV infection hasn’t specific manifestations and it causes harm to multiple organs, especially the liver and lung. A statistical analysis of positive and negative rate of HCMV in various kinds of clinical indications shows HCMV infection is probably related with various diseases, such as Cytomegalovirus hepatitis, Infant hepatitis syndrome, liver dysfunction, pneumonia, Bronchitis, Upper respiratory tract infections, enteritis, enterocolitis, diarrhea, hematemesis, heart failure, etc.
The Human Cytomegalovirus DNA Quantitative Fluorescence Diagnostic Kit (PCR-Fluorescence Probing) is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test for the detection of HCMV DNA in human urine, serum and peripheral blood samples. It is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of an HCMV infection and for observing drug efficacy.
