CMV remains a significant challenge in solid organ transplant recipients, with impact on allograft function and toxicities related to treatment. The past several years has been notable for new approaches for prophylaxis and treatment, and greater understanding of the antigen-specific immune response. New antiviral medications (including letermovir and maribavir) and immune monitoring developments have the potential to transform the field. This session will allow for discussion of new approaches to prevention, prophylaxis, treatment, and patient risk stratification.
