There has been a lot of consternation at our institution about the infection control precautions for TVEC. We currently do the injection in a private treatment room with the door closed. After the patient leaves, the room is “terminally cleaned” including changing the curtains, etc. This obviously takes time and the room is not available for some time after.
Some patients receive TVEC as well as other therapy. In that case, they cannot be in the general treatment area (to receive the other therapy) once the TVEC has been administered. What are the infection control practices at your institutions?
