Recurrent anterior uveitis in immunocompetent individuals can be caused by multiple members of the herpes virus group, including cytomegalovirus (CMV). Repeated bouts of CMV intraocular inflammation can be associated with ocular hypertension, glaucoma, pain, vision reduction or blindness. CMV anterior uveitis is commonly misdiagnosed as a non-infectious anterior uveitis and treated as such, which can beget further complications. Diagnosis requires directed polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing. While antiviral therapy exists for CMV, identifying the appropriate therapy has been challenging because no randomized trials comparing routes of therapy (particularly oral or topical) have been performed. Currently, CMV anterior uveitis is typically treated with oral valganciclovir in the United States but carries the risk of serious systemic side effects that necessitate laboratory monitoring. There is evidence that suggests topical ganciclovir can be used to treat and prevent recurrences of CMV anterior uveitis, though the appropriate concentration is not well defined. Topical ganciclovir is attractive because it does not require laboratory monitoring, though a unique side effect profile that includes corneal epitheliopathy and conjunctivitis may preclude long-term use. While anterior chamber paracentesis with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing demonstrates CMV during an initial flare of inflammation, it is unknown whether repeated recurrences of inflammation are mediated by viral re-infection and replication in the anterior chamber or if a sterile immune response is at play. Consequently, patients may be submitted to many years of oral or topical antiviral therapy. This strategy poses challenges without proper evaluation of the multiple treatment and long-term management approaches. Further studies are needed to elucidate the most appropriate antiviral therapies that balance efficacy and toxicity while treating CMV anterior uveitis. We hypothesize that the efficacy of oral valganciclovir in the treatment of cytomegalovirus (CMV) anterior uveitis will be greater when compared to topical or placebo treatments. This study will be a multicenter, double-masked, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial.
This study is a phase I, open-label study to determine recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) for the BD03 vaccination in kidney transplant recipients. The recommended dose will be selected based on the safety and tolerability profiles observed.
The evidence to date indicates that educational strategies may be effective at reducing antenatal CMV infection, however these have not been tested in the UK. In phase 1 of the study, the investigators will co-design an educational intervention with pregnant women and families affected by congenital CMV with the aim of reducing the risk of acquisition of CMV in pregnancy. In phase 2 of the study, the investigators will use this educational intervention in a randomised controlled trial (RCT) as part of a feasibility study to generate the data required for the design of a future main RCT. Should the future main RCT show that the educational intervention is effective in reducing the risk of primary CMV infection in pregnancy, the intervention could be rolled out in the National Health Service (NHS). This would have significant benefits to patients and the NHS. No other single cause of congenital defects and long-term developmental disability currently provides greater opportunity for improved outcomes than the prevention of congenital CMV, therefore trials designed to test prevention strategies should be a research priority for the NHS.
This study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of Human Cytomegalovirus (CMV) vaccine V160 administered in a 2-dose or 3-dose regimen in healthy seronegative women 16 to 35 years of age. Participants will receive blinded V160 on Day 1, Month 2, and Month 6 (3-dose regimen), V160 on Day 1 and Month 6 and placebo at Month 2 (2-dose regimen), or placebo on Day 1, Month 2, and Month 6, and will be followed to approximately Month 36. The primary hypothesis of the study is that administration of a 3-dose regimen of V160 will reduce the incidence of primary CMV infection compared to placebo.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether virus-specific T cell lines (VSTs) are safe and can effectively control three viruses (EBV, CMV, and adenovirus) in patients who have had a stem cell transplant and also in patients that have a primary immunodeficiency disorder with no prior stem cell transplant.
Aim of the work - To identify the prevalence of CMV infection in patients with steroid-refractory ulcerative colitis. - To assess the clinical and endoscopic conditions in these patients.
This clinical study will assess the safety, reactogenicity and immunogenicity of mRNA-1647 and mRNA-1443 cytomegalovirus vaccines in healthy adults
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the feasibility of using CSJ148 to prevent congenital human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) in pregnant women with primary HCMV infection.
This is a phase II, open-label trial to evaluate valganciclovir as a treatment to prevent development of SNHL in infants with asymptomatic congenital CMV infection. The trial will be conducted in two phases - screening of newborns to identify eligible subjects, and treatment of those newborns who have confirmed CMV infection at birth but without outward manifestations of congenital CMV infection. 229 newborns with confirmed CMV infection but without baseline SNHL and who meet all inclusion/exclusion criteria will be enrolled into the treatment phase. Study duration is 5 years. Primary objective of this study is to estimate the proportion of subjects with asymptomatic congenital CMV infection who, following treatment with 4 months of oral valganciclovir, develop sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) by 6 months of life.
CMV cytotoxic T cells (CTLs) manufactured with the Miltenyi CliniMACS Prodigy Cytokine Capture System will be administered in children, adolescents and young adults (CAYA) with refractory cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection post Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (AlloHSCT) or with primary immunodeficiencies (PID).
