Reactivation of the human polyomavirus BK (BKV) has emerged as an important cause of allograft rejection in renal transplant recipients. Expression of the viral early promoter that leads to production of T-antigen is the first event in viral lytic infection. In an effort to understand the mechanism involved in the activation of BKV early gene (BKV(E))(More)
Polyomavirus BK (BKV) is a serious problem for immunocompromised patients, where latent virus can enter into the lytic cycle causing cytolytic destruction of host cells. BKV infects >80% of the population worldwide during childhood and then remains in a latent state in the kidney. In the context of immunosuppression in kidney transplant patients,(More)
A variety of rare clinical syndromes are seen with strikingly increased prevalence in HIV-1-infected individuals, many with underlying viral etiologies. The emergence of these diseases in AIDS reflects a reduction in the ability of the immune system to mount an adequate defense against viruses in general due to the damage inflicted to the immune system by(More)
Flow cytometric immunophenotyping (FCI) is recommended in the evaluation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens for hematologic neoplasms. This study reviewed FCI of CSF specimens collected for primary diagnosis (n = 77) and follow-up for known malignancy (n = 153). FCI was positive in 11 (4.8%) of 230 specimens: acute myeloid leukemia, 6; precursor B-acute(More)
