Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a virus related to the herpes virus group of infections. Like herpes, it is inactive at times, but it is an incurable, life-time infection. CMV is a major concern if a mother becomes first infected while pregnant.
How Boston Children's Hospital approaches cytomegalovirus
Because CMV could be a concern for newborn babies, doctors at Children’s believe that diagnosis and treatment are most beneficial when they come early; these may include prenatal screening for infection and administering of anti-viral agents. Researchers at Children’s are also looking for ways to prevent transmission of CMV from breast milk to pre-term infants, and ways to manage CMV for organ transplant recipients.
