A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Prophylactic Use of Maribavir for the Prevention of Cytomegalovirus Disease in Recipients of Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplants.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections remain a significant problem following various types of
transplants that are associated with strong immunosuppressive therapy. Maribavir is a new
oral anti-CMV drug with a novel mechanism of action compared to currently available anti-CMV
drugs. This study will test the safety and efficacy of maribavir for the prevention of CMV
disease when given as prophylaxis for up to 12 weeks following allogeneic stem cell

Inclusion Criteria:

- Recipient or donor CMV seropositive

- Have transplant engraftment

- Able to swallow tablets

Exclusion Criteria:
