Hybrid Satellite Symposium at the 49th Annual Meeting of the EBMT

Activity Overview

In this symposium, an expert panel will discuss cytomegalovirus (CMV) treatment guidelines and benefits and toxicities of traditional CMV therapies in hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) patients. Panelists will address special challenges associated with refractory or drug-resistant CMV in HCT and present a new treatment option. An experienced patient with CMV will share impactful insights to help provide better care for HCT patients with CMV.
