I think the data suggest the serum values to be more diagnostic for *true* BK nephropathy than any of the urine studies thus far.

Here is a great summary of the diagnostic tests that have been used to detect BK nephropathy:

However, the urinary BK viral studies were "under investigation" in the study that you quoted from NDT 2006. Newer data should be presented in this post like this:
