Biochip for HCMV Detection in Breast Milk

Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is the leading cause of neonatal viral infection and can have a significant impact on the neurosensory development of newborns and especially preterm infants. HCMV infection may result from maternal-fetal transmission during pregnancy or postnatal transmission. While congenital HCMV infection affects about 2-5% of very preterm infants, ...
