A new vaccine that has the potential to be the first to prevent maternal and congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection was detailed in a study published in the March 19 edition of the New England Journal of Medicine. Dr. Larry Corey, co-director of the Hutchinson Center’s Vaccine and Infectious Disease Institute, and Dr. Meei-li Huang, of VIDI and a research scientist in the Virology Division at the University of Washington and an affiliate member in VIDI, were co-authors of the paper with colleagues at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, who led the study.
