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.
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
