Utilizing a CDST for Resistant/Refractory CMV in Solid Organ Transplant Patients

Program Overview

Join Drs. Kotton, Razonable, and Humar as they illustrate how to use a new clinical decision support tool (CDST) for resistant or refractory cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in solid organ transplant (SOT) patients. They will walk you through a challenging CMV resistant patient case and demonstrate how to enter clinical data into the novel CDST for optimal treatment decision making. An expert panel discussion provides opportunity for you to learn how to apply the CDST in practice and incorporate a new therapy, maribavir, into the care of SOT patients with resistant or refractory CMV infection.
