They will share clinical insights on emerging treatments for resistant and refractory CMV disease, as well as tips for avoiding and managing the challenging side effects of current antiviral therapies.

You will be captivated as you watch a first-hand account of life-altering CMV when a lung transplant patient shares his journey with resistant CMV, how CMV treatments and side effects impacted his life, and his advice for healthcare professionals.
