CMV (cytomegalovirus) Vaccine Study Age 16 and 17

What is CMV?

CMV is a common virus that is often overlooked because healthy people who get it rarely show symptoms. But if a woman becomes infected with CMV while she is pregnant, she can pass the infection to her unborn baby. This can cause her child to suffer long-term disability due to birth defects, including hearing loss, or even death in very severe cases.

Is treatment available?

There are currently no approved vaccines or treatments available to prevent CMV. That is why it is so important that we work together to make sure investigational vaccines are safe and effective.

To join this trial, you must be:

  • Women age 16 or 17
  • In good health
  • Not pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant within the next 9 months
