Cytomegalovirus Infection Advancing Strategies for Prevention and Treatment

September 4, 2018 to September 6, 2018
Fishers Lane Conference Center, Room 1D13, 5601 Fishers Lane, Rockville, Maryland 20852 USA

Cytomegalovirus infection causes significant morbidity and mortality in congenitally-infected infants and transplant recipients. There is no licensed vaccine for CMV, and antiviral treatment of CMV infection is challenged by drug toxicities and emergence of resistant CMV isolates in treated patients. New approaches for both prevention and treatment would have a substantial public health impact in both populations, but numerous challenges have hampered progress in these areas.
