Cytomegalovirus Vaccine (CMV) Study


Cytomegalovirus Vaccine Study

Researchers are looking at the safety and the effectiveness of the cytomegalovirus vaccine in healthy adults.
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common virus that can infect anyone. Once you’re infected with CMV, the virus remains with you for life.It is related to the viruses that cause chickenpox and herpes cold sores but doesn’t usually cause any symptoms in healthy people. However, it can cause serious disease in people with weakened immune systems, pregnant women, and babies. The most significant concern is newborns infected with CMV as they can develop permanent disabilities such as deafness and mental problems.

We are recruiting healthy adults between the ages of 18 to 40. This study is the first time that this vaccine is being given.
