Refining Management of CMV After Transplant: Exploiting Recent Advances to Alleviate Patient Burden

Program Overview

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is one of the most common infectious complications in solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients. During this symposium, the faculty will discuss best practices for prevention and treatment of CMV post-transplant and provide clinical pearls for managing difficult-to-treat CMV, including refractory or drug-resistant disease. You will learn first-hand from a patient with CMV about the burden and very personal aspects of this disease.

You must be registered for the American Transplant Congress 2024 to attend this symposium in-person. This symposium is not part of the ATC official educational program and the sessions and content are not endorsed by ATC.
