Molecular Biology, Epidemiology, and Pathogenesis of Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy, the JC Virus-Induced Demyelinating Disease of the Human Brain
TLDR
The study of JCV and the elucidation of the underlying causes of PML are important and active areas of research that may lead to new insights into immune function and host antiviral defense, as well as to potential new therapies.
Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy: What’s New?
TLDR
Findings on the pathogenesis of PML are reviewed and the encouraging case reports of novel treatments are reviewed, including immunomodulation and/or inhibition of viral replication.
Are astrocytes infected in progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML)?
TLDR
Light- and electron-microscopic analysis of the present case and 23 cases published in the literature since 1970 leads to the conclusion that the relation is inverse between the appearance of giant, bizarre astrocytes and that of the productive infection of the nontransformed ones.
Progressive multifocal leucoencephalopathy and viral antibody titres
TLDR
There was a transient stabilization of the disease following treatment with cytarabine with a change in antibody titres suggestive of reduced viral replication in the central nervous system and a host response to the infection.
Progressive multifocal leucoencephalopathy with magnetic resonance imaging verification and therapeutic trials with interferon
TLDR
Progressive multifocal leucoencephalopathy was diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging and brain biopsy and after the introduction of intrathecal β-interferon therapy, her neurological status and MRI findings became stable and showed minimal improvement.
Virus-cell interaction in oligodendroglia, astroglia and phagocyte in progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy
TLDR
Many virus-bearing sstroglias were noted to be in the early stage of cellular necrosis, or “edematous degeneration”, which indicates that the JC virus is capable of inducing both lytic and abortive astroglial infections.
Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy: the evolution of a disease once considered rare.
TLDR
Establishing an unequivocal diagnosis of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy currently requires brain biopsy, and the application of polymerase chain reaction for JC virus amplification to cerebrospinal fluid samples suggests that it may provide an alternative means of diagnosis.
Pathogenesis and molecular biology of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, the JC virus-induced demyelinating disease of the human brain.
TLDR
Increased understanding of the pathogenesis of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy suggests new ways to intervene in JC virus infection with immunomodulation therapies, which may yield to innovative treatment protocols.
Morbidity in Compromised Patients Related to Viruses Other Than Herpes Group and Hepatitis Viruses
TLDR
The past decade has witnessed greatly increased awareness of the multiple roles played by viral agents in immunocompromised patients, and the development of more direct approaches to diagnosis using molecular biologic and monoclonal antibody technology has been greatly facilitated.
