Current Opportunities 

 

Polyomavirus (BK) Survey

Polyomavirus (BK) is a major cause of allograft loss after kidney transplantation. The increasing prevalence of BK viraemia and nephropathy in the recent years has been attributed to the use of potent immunosuppression. Currently, various strategies have been developed for BK viraemia and nephropathy in kidney transplant recipients, but practices are highly variable between individual clinicians, within and between centres. In addition, the evidence supporting the treatment decisions are poor and limited only to observational studies. 

We are interested in conducting a multi-centre randomised controlled trial to define the optimal strategies for the treatment of BK viraemia and nephropathy in kidney transplant recipients. 

Obtaining feedback from you regarding your current practices would be vital for the design of this trial. We would appreciate your taking the time to complete the following survey. Your responses are voluntary and will be confidential. Responses will not be identified by individual. All responses will be compiled together and analysed as a group. 

It should take about five minutes of your time.  Please see link below.
