The urine samples were concentrated by means of centrifugation at 700g for 10 minutes, and 5 mL of the urine pellets were then cytocentrifuged at 250g for 10 minutes onto 2 slides, both of which were fixed in 95% ethanol, stained with Papanicolaou stain, and cytologically examined to identify the presence of decoy cells, indicating active PV replication.
21) Noninvasive methods, such as the cytologic analysis of urine to search for decoy cells or qualitative and quantitative PCR on urine and blood, are useful in selecting patients with renal transplants who are at risk of developing PVAN and in monitoring treatment efficacy, (22) but not in formulating a definite diagnosis.
However, when we compared BKV TCR sequence variations with the presence and strength of viruria (evaluated as the number of decoy cells) in a recent study, (19) we did not find any relationship because similar sequence variations were detected with both the presence and absence of decoy cells.
