Porcine cytomegalovirus and coagulopathy in pig-to-primate xenotransplantation

Publication date2003

A rapidly progressive disorder termed consumptive coagulopathy (CC) has been observed frequently in pig-to-baboon renal xenotransplantation. CC may be initiated by endothelial activation and induction of procoagulant factors after immunologic injury or infection, or by molecular incompatibilities between porcine coagulation proteins and primate clotting factors. The activation of porcine (P) cytomegalovirus (PCMV) and baboon (B) CMV infections has been documented in pig-to-primate xenotransplantation. The purpose of this study was to determine the contribution of PCMV and BCMV to CC.
