Let Γ be a countable discrete group. We prove that if the usual Baum-Connes conjecture is valid for Γ, then the real form of Baum-Connes is also valid for Γ. This is relevant to proving that Baum-Connes implies the stable Gromov-Lawson-Rosenberg conjecture about Riemannian metrics of positive scalar curvature.
