    Hi Drs. Racaniello, Despommier, and Dove,

    I have a friend who had a kidney transplant in April. One of the many (!) tests she's undergone is to detect the BK virus. I didn't know anything about that virus until she said she was being tested. It's apparently a serious problem for kidney transplant patients. Can you provide more information?

    Thanks again for your podcast. I listen every week. (I e-mailed you many weeks ago regarding libraries, and you kindly read my comments on the podcast.)
