INTRODUCTION Although the molecular genetics possibly underlying the pathogenesis of human thymoma have been extensively studied, its etiology remains poorly understood. Because murine polyomavirus consistently induces thymomas in mice, we assessed the presence of the novel human polyomavirus 7 (HPyV7) in human thymic epithelial tumors. METHODS HPyV7-DNA Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), DNA-polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and immunohistochemistry (IHC) were performed in 37 thymomas… CONTINUE READING
