Prospective Multicentric Study of Cytomegalovirus Resistance in Transplant Patients and Bone Marrow Recipients

2014-08-27 03:18:09 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators aim is to determine the incidence of cytomegalovirus resistance to antivirals in a cohort study. The patients are included at their first CMV active infection and are followed during two years thereafter. When criteria for suspected resistance are meet, blood and urine samples are collected for virus isolation and further resistance phenotype, and for resistance genotype determination. Results are compared with baseline samples. Clinical information such as treatment, immunosuppressive regimen and clinical evolution will be collected. Through this study, the investigators aim to organize a national network for the detection and identification of CMV resistant strains that will be useful when new therapeutics will be available.
