Rely-AMP CMV

 

 

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a double-stranded DNA virus and is a member of the Herpesviridae family. CMV usually causes an asymptomatic infection or produces mild flulike symptoms. People with compromised immune systems, such as people receiving organ transplants, and people receiving treatment for HIV/AIDS or cancer are at increased risk of serious complications of CMV.

CMV can also cause serious problems if a woman develops a CMV infection during pregnancy, as the infection can spread to the unborn baby . Around one in ten infected babies will have lasting problems: deafness, poor eyesight, intellectual disability, an enlarged liver or spleen, and a small head. Due to the limitations of culture based methods, real-time PCR has become an important laboratory tool for the diagnosis and management of CMV disease.
