This interactive meeting will provide an in-depth review of patient risk factors, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of opportunistic viral infections in transplant recipients. Topics that will be covered include adenoviruses, BK and JC polyomaviruses, cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, antiviral therapy and the challenge of drug resistance. This meeting will highlight best practices with respect to currently available testing modalities, therapeutic drug monitoring testing, detection of antiviral drug resistance, and the future of transplant-associated viral disease diagnostics.

 

Upon completion of the meeting, the participant should be able to:

  • Describe the basic biology and epidemiology of adenoviruses, Epstein-Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, and BK and JC polyomaviruses, and discuss pathophysiological mechanisms of the disease in transplant recipients
  • Discuss the clinical features of transplant-associated viral infections, including disease symptomatology, diagnostic methods, and monitoring response to therapy
  • Identify antivirals and therapeutic strategies that are used for treatment of transplant-associated viral infections
