Varicella inoculation to prevent shingles, and cytomegalovirus inoculation to prevent cytomegalovirus associated graft failures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

I suggest varicella virus inoculation be considered to reduce the risk of herpes zoster (the shingles), and cytomegalovirus (CMV) inoculation be considered to reduce the risk of CMV associated transplant graft failure. Such inoculations are inexpensive and easy to implement, and are simple potential solutions to common and often severe medical problems with suboptimal current treatments.
