Objectives: To evaluate the influence of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP)of IL10, TNFα, IFNγand IL18 in the incidence of CMV infection in renal transplant recipients. Methods: A retrospective cohort study from a prospective database included 709 patients that received a renal transplant at our center between 2005-2013. We excluded re-transplant, not Caucasian, primary graft failure or death in the early post-transplant. SNP analysis was performed by real-time PCR with Taqman® probes. The patients were stratified according to the higher producing genotype. Results: The incidence of CMV infection and disease was of 37% and 6.4% respectively.The main risk factors are described in tables 1 and 2. There was a significant independent association between SNP -137 G/C of IL18 and CMV infection, where carriers of G allele had a higher risk of CMV infection (OR=2.79; CI 95%: 1.00-7.78; p=0.044). In the subgroup of patients that received prophylaxis for CMV, the main risk factor for infection after discontinuation of Valgancyclovir was being a carrier of G allele (OR=5.10; CI 95%: 1.12-23.20; p=0.035). No patients developed CMV disease within non-carriers.

|ACUTE VASCULAR REJECTION|
|YES VS NO||2.63 (1.55-4.45)||<0.01|

|DELAYED GRAFT FUNCTION|
|YES VS NO||1.63 (1.06-2.51)||0.026|
|CMV DISEASE||OR (CI 95%)||P|
|ACUTE VASCULAR REJECTION(YES VS NO)||6.83(3.01-15.59)||<0.01|
|CMVIgG (D+/R-) VS (D-/R+ & D+/R+)||3.74(1.54-9.08)||0.003|
Conclusions: SNP -137G/C of IL18 can affect the incidence of CMV infection and response towards prophylaxis with Valgancyclovir. The knowledge of these polymorphisms in recipients previous to transplantation and a closer virologicalmonitorization in those patients with a higher risk of CMV infection can aid in the individualization of treatment regimens and lower the rate of infectious complications.
