Valcyte is an antiviral medication used to prevent cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections from occurring after an organ transplant. The medication is also used to treat CMV eye infections in adults with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Valganiclovir is a ganciclovir prodrug that inhibits viral DNA polymerase to stop the growth and spread of harmful viral cells. This action allows Valcyte to prevent CMV infections in those at high risk after receiving an organ transplant or those with AIDS.
