Assessing Potential Implications of New Data on CMV Treatment in Transplant Recipients

Activity Overview

The management of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection or disease in transplant patients has historically been challenging due to side effects with older antiviral therapies, including myelotoxicity and renal toxicity. Side effect and efficacy data for newer improved transplant antiviral therapies, including maribavir and letermovir, is emerging rapidly. The goal of this activity is to help you learn about the emerging data and how to apply it in clinical practice when managing your transplant patients.
