ADV is frequently seen in our pediatric SOT population. It presents in a variety of clinical presentation and can cause severe disease. In this population, there are very few studies to determine the safety of CDV as a potential therapeutic agent. We present the findings of our retrospective study evaluating the efficacy and safety of CDV as 2 separate dosing regimens. Regimen A uses the standard 5 mg/kg once a week (Regimen A), and the second uses the 1 mg/kg 3 times per week (Regimen B). Overall, the dosing regimen did not differ in nephrotoxicity, but Regimen B had a higher, although non-significant, rate of viral load clearance. This suggests that more frequent dosing at lower levels may be more efficacious without any significant side effects in our SOT population.
