Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is implicated in several vascular diseases through endothelial dysfunction. Most of the research on CMV has focused on either congenital CMV infections or CMV disease in immunocompromised hosts; however, CMV has also been associated with vascular diseases in...
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the most common opportunistic post-transplant infection. Although important advances have been made in the management and prevention of post-transplant CMV, current strategies for monitoring and prevention still show significant limitations. Such gaps create opportunities...
Improving the Assignment of Cytomegalovirus Infection Status in Adults and Children Awaiting Solid Organ TransplantDownload
Cytomegalovirus (CMV), a herpes-virus, is widespread in the human population as a lifelong and largely asymptomatic infection in immunocompetent people, but it is a major cause of morbidity in solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients. Knowledge of pre-transplant CMV infection status, generally...
