Patient : I am considering dating a guy that has had a kidney transplant, as a result he has contracted CMV. He is also taking VALCYTE which he said is because of the transplant. He has assured me that I have no risk of being infected. Prior to making a decision I would like to know if I can catch this and if I should be worried that he is taking medication to treat AIDS?
