Vital statistics for the global cytomegalovirus infection treatment and diagnosis market

Increasing the diagnosis of CMV infection is likely to propel the market growth of cytomegalovirus.  The Public Health Agency of Canada estimates that 40%-100% of the global population have CMV antibody present in their bodies. Immunocompromised patients (HIV, organ transplant), premature infants, newborns, and congenital CMV are at high risk of developing a CMV infection.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in every 150 infants are born with congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in the U.S. However, only one in five infants infected with CMV has long term health problems. Increasing infection rates and demand for effective treatment therapies will further propel the cytomegalovirus infection treatment and diagnosis of market growth.

Key Developments

  • Major institutes are focused on launching various programs focused on R&D activities related to cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection. For instance, in August 2019, The UW Program for Advanced Cell Therapy (PACT) launched first-in-US cell-therapy trial for kidney transplant patients that will deploy virus-specific white blood cells for the treatment of severe cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection after kidney transplantation.
  • Moreover, in January 2019, a team of researchers from Lions Eye Institute (LEI), a medical research institute affiliated with the University of Western Australia, discovered a new method to prevent reactivation of CMV in mouse models by injecting them with their own antibodies. The research is expected to offer a new strategy to control CMV reactivation in humans.
  • In November 2018, a study by University Children’s Hospital Tuebingen, Germany — published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases of Infectious Diseases Society of America— found that short-term pasteurization of breast milk prevents postnatal CMV transmission in very preterm infants.
