Monitoring viruses by PCR

Department of Clinical Immunology at the Russian Children’s Clinical Hospital (RCCH)
Young patients of the Department of Clinical Immunology at the RCCH need a regular screening of viral infections by PCR (the most sensitive method for this purpose). Tests are done in the Laboratory of Molecular Biology at the FRCC-PHOI hospital for a fee. 100.000 rubles are needed monthly to conduct the tests. The obtained results allow doctors to modify therapy quickly in patients with borderline amount of virus particles in the blood.
