In immunocompromised patients, correct monitoring of response of CMV infections to antiviral treatment may be the most powerful tool for detecting the emergence of drug-resistant CMV strains. Following treatment initiation, a sharp decrease in level of viral parameters is consistently observed in patients infected by drug-susceptible CMV strains. In contrast, the emergence of drug-resistant strains is associated with an increase in viral load or the lack of decrease in level of different viral parameters.
