Kotton, C N; Kumar, D; Caliendo, A M; Asberg, A; Chou, S; Snydman, D R; Allen, U; Humar, A (2010). International consensus guidelines on the management of cytomegalovirus in solid organ transplantation. Transplantation, 89(7):779-795.

Abstract

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) remains one of the most common infections after solid organ transplantation, resulting in significant morbidity, graft loss, and occasional mortality. Management of CMV varies considerably among transplant centers. A panel of experts on CMV and solid organ transplant was convened by The Infectious Diseases Section of The Transplantation Society to develop evidence and expert opinion-based consensus guidelines on CMV management including diagnostics, immunology, prevention, treatment, drug resistance, and pediatric issues.
