    Challenges in CMV Management 

    Management of CMV infected and immunocompromised individuals at risk for life-threatening post-transplantation complications is critically dependent on accurate viral load testing.  While the widespread adoption of international CMV standards for test calibration has improved test comparability, significant inter-assay variation among CMV tests remains.

    Please join Dr. David Hillyard, Medical Director for Molecular Infectious Testing at ARUP Laboratories, in this second part of our webinar series for a discussion of recent advances in CMV test standardization and its implications for management of CMV infected patients.

    Learning objectives:
    1)    Overview of NAT in management of CMV
    2)    The value of CMV test standardization
    3)    Recent insights into the challenge of CMV standardization and implications for other viral load tests
