Viral Hepatitis is the Seventh Leading Cause of Death Worldwide; U.S. Treatment Interventions Continue To Go Underfunded

Relapse of Leukemia After Bone Marrow Transplantation: Cytomegalovirus Infection Has No Protective Effect

Recent studies on a small number of patients with leukemia treated with bone marrow transplantation have suggested that the presence of the common cytomegalovirus (CMV) in patients or their donors may protect against relapse or even death after the transplant. A large international study published in the journal Blood now shows the opposite. The virus not only does not prevent leukemia relapse, but also remains a major factor associated with the risk of death.
