Randomized Controlled Trial of Valganciclovir for Asymptomatic Cytomegalovirus Infected Hearing Impaired Infants
Sorry, not yet accepting patients
The overall goal of this study is to determine the clinical benefit and safety of antiviral therapy for asymptomatic congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV) infected hearing-impaired infants. We will conduct a multi-center double-blind randomized placebo-controlled trial to determine whether hearing-impaired infants with asymptomatic cCMV have better hearing and language outcomes if they receive valganciclovir antiviral treatment. We will also determine the safety of antiviral valganciclovir therapy for asymptomatic cCMV-infected hearing impaired infants. This study will be unique in that the cohort enrolled will only include hearing-impaired infants with asymptomatic cCMV. Aim 1: Test the hypothesis that asymptomatic CMV-infected hearing impaired infants treated with antiviral valganciclovir will have better hearing and language outcomes compared with untreated CMV-infected hearing impaired infants. Aim 2: Evaluate the safety of antiviral valganciclovir therapy for asymptomatic CMV-infected hearing impaired infants. Aim 3: Evaluate the pharmacokinetics (pK) of valganciclovir using pharmacometrics modeling to develop a population pK model.
