    Vaccines
    Current research has produced a few potential, but unapproved, vaccines to prevent CMV, including some that contain live, weakened strains of the virus, and others that just contain small pieces of the virus. Though CMV is common, it has the potential of producing seriously harmful effects on the afflicted individual. Therefore, finding a CMV vaccine has been given very high priority because of the life-saving and disability-reducing possibilities, especially in newborns.

    Healthy individuals that do not experience symptoms of CMV do not need medical treatment. Those that experience mild symptoms are able to treat the symptoms (sore throat, fever, etc.) individually as other common viral infections are treated.

    urine, and sperm.sexual transmission. It is
    The distinctive feature of CMV infection is enlargement of the cell and presence of viral inclusion bodies. Viral inclusion bodies are abnormal structures that can appear in the nucleus and/or cytoplasm during virus multiplication and can be important signals for diagnosing a viral infection.
    When a human is first infected, CMV infects the epithelial cells in the salivary glands, which causes continuous infection and further reproduction and transmission of the virus to other cells in the body.

    Current Research

    http://www.medpagetoday.com/InfectiousDisease/GeneralInfectiousDisease/13327
    Robert Pass, M.D., of the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine and his colleagues have been experimenting with CMV to find a vaccine for the virus. The team developed a vaccine based on only one CMV antigen and an adjuvent (trigger immune responses for greater vaccine delivery). The test consisted of 441 women (CMV-negative) between the ages of 14 and 40. Some women were given a placebo, while others received the vaccine. The results showed that 8% of women in the vaccine group contracted CMV but 14% of women contracted CMV in the placebo group. Out of the 81 children born to mothers in the vaccine group, only one was born with CMV (1%), compared to the 3% of CMV-infected children born to mothers in the placebo group. The results of the reduction of congenital CMV was too close to call, but the testing has given researchers promising answers to a potential CMV vaccine.
