Research

     

When parents first find out that their child was born with CMV they often ask why more isn't done to test for CMV and why isn't there a vaccine.  For a long time the lack of safe and effective treatment for CMV, either in pregnancy or after birth, has held back attempts at prevention.  This is all changing and there is a lot of exciting research currently underway and in the pipeline.

The lastest research into CMV is listed below:

One of CMV Action's key objectives is to support the development and implementation of research into better testing, treatment and management of CMV:

  • Support recruitment into trials
  • Support research bids
  • Disseminate research evidence in lay terms to parents, journalists and policy makers
  • Campaign for relevant bodies to implement research findings
  • Campaign for better and more consistent management of CMV

CMV Action would love to hear from any professionals who are carrying out any practice-based research into the management of CMV.  Please contact info@cmvaction.org.uk
