Therapy of CMV-infection



The cytomegalovirus (CMV) belongs to a group of herpesviruses and can affect many organs. Most frequently, this virus affects the retina and causes CMV-retinitis leading to blindness. CMV is commonly the last infection in the course of HIV-disease, usually starting several months until a few years prior to death.


In collaboration with the University of Essen (Department of Dermatology and Venerology) a clinical trial is being performed evaluating the significance of an early CMV-therapy prior to manifestation of organ disease.
