Cytomegalovirus (CMV)

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Disease Paid Blood Donation Program

Between 50% and 80% of adults in the United States are infected with CMV by 40 years of age. Cytomegalovirus is a member of the herpes virus family, which includes herpes simplex viruses and the viruses that cause Chicken Pox (VZV/Varicella Zoster Virus) and infectious mononucleosis (Epstein Barr Virus).

How long will it last?

Once CMV is in a person’s body, it stays there for life; most infections are “silent”, meaning they cause no signs of symptoms in an infected person.

How is it spread?

Transmission of CMV occurs from person to person, through close contact with body fluids (urine, saliva/spit, breast milk, blood, tears, semen, and vaginal fluids)
