  报告简介:

  CMV is the most common congenital viral infection and is the leading Non-genetic cause of neurological defects. CMV infection in early life is also associated with intense and prolonged viral excretion, indicating limited control of viral replication. The seminar will summarize our current understanding of the innate and adaptive immune responses to CMV infection during fetal life and infancy. It will illustrate the fact that studies of congenital CMV infection have provided a proof of principle that the human fetus can develop  anti-viral innate and adaptive immune responses, indicating that such responses should be inducible by vaccination early after birth.
