Cytomegalovirus is a common herpes virus infection. Most individuals do not experience any symptoms. If symptoms are present, they may include fever, sore throat, fatigue and swollen glands. These symptoms are often confused with other illnesses, making it hard to diagnose.
Cytomegalovirus is passed through bodily fluids such as urine and saliva. The biggest risk factor is having direct exposure to children 5 years or younger at home or at work. Children can pass the virus to an adult who may become pregnant in the future. If an infected individual were to become pregnant, she may inadvertently pass this virus on to her child. Cytomegalovirus can cause hearing loss and neurodevelopmental abnormalities in newborns. Congenital Cytomegalovirus infection is the number one infectious cause of newborn malformations in developed countries.
Albuquerque Clinical Trials is conducting a research study to evaluate a vaccination to prevent Cytomegalovirus. Qualified participants will receive all study medication and study-related care from a dedicated team of medical staff at no cost. Health insurance is not required to participate. Compensation for time and travel is available.
