EBMT-Case Studies on Innovative Treatment Approaches for CMV in HCT

Activity Overview

Join us for cutting edge insights on clinically challenging cases of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) patients. Test your knowledge about CMV and learn about emerging therapies for minimizing bone marrow toxicity and improving outcomes.
Location: IFEMA Feria de Madrid | Madrid, Spain

LIVE ACTIVITY

Target Audience

This educational activity is designed for practicing clinicians, including hematology and infectious disease specialist clinicians in the United States and Europe, who manage cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection and disease in hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) patients.

Learning Objectives
