STUDY QUESTION Are JC polyomavirus (JCPyV) and BK polyomavirus (BKPyV) infections associated with spontaneous abortion (SA)? SUMMARY ANSWER There is no association of JCPyV or BKPyV with SA. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY A large number of risk factors have been associated with SA. The role of polyomaviruses, including JCPyV and BKPyV, in SA remains to be clarified. STUDY DESIGN, SIZE, DURATION This is a case-control study including women affected by spontaneous abortion (SA, n = 100, the cases… Expand
Mother-to-child transmission of oncogenic polyomaviruses BKPyV, JCPyV and SV40.
TLDR
In this investigation, PyV vertical transmission was revealed by detecting PyV DNA sequences and IgG antibodies in samples from females and their offspring suggesting a potential risk of diseases in newborns. Expand
Investigation on Spontaneous Abortion and Human Papillomavirus Infection †
TLDR
The results suggest that HPV infection in chorionic villi may be a rare event and it is likely that HPV has no significant role in SA. Expand
Droplet‐digital PCR assay to detect Merkel cell polyomavirus sequences in chorionic villi from spontaneous abortion affected females
TLDR
MCPyV gene expression analysis by quantitative PCR for the large T antigen (LT) and viral capsid protein 1 (VP1) showed their mRNAs in 2/4 (50%) SA‐ and 2/5 (40%) VI‐M CPyV‐positive samples. Expand
Colorectal Carcinoma Affected Patients Are Significantly Poor Responders Against the Oncogenic JC Polyomavirus
TLDR
The data suggest that patients with CRC are significantly poor responders against JCPyV VP1 antigens, which may account for their predisposition to the colorectal carcinoma onset. Expand
Association between oncogenic human papillomavirus type 16 and Killian polyp
TLDR
Investigating the potential involvement of human papilloma- (HPV) and polyoma-viruses (HPyV) infections in the onset of Killian polyp indicates that the KP onset is heterogeneous, whereas HPV16 detection in the KP antral portion may be consistent with HPV16 infection derived from the maxillary sinus. Expand
High Human Papillomavirus DNA loads in Inflammatory Middle Ear Diseases
TLDR
The data suggest that HPV may infect the middle ear mucosa, whereas HPV-positive COMCs are associated with higher viral DNA loads as compared to NME. Expand
Association Between Simian Virus 40 and Human Tumors
TLDR
Immunological data obtained from indirect ELISAs, using SV40 mimotopes, employed to analyze serum samples from oncological patients, have indicated that these sera had a higher prevalence of antibodies against SV40 compared to healthy subjects. Expand
SERPINA1 Gene Promoter Is Differentially Methylated in Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells of Pregnant Women
TLDR
This study indicates, for the first time, that SERPINA1 gene promoter is differentially methylated in PBMCs from HS, and likely, modulation of the methylation may be a novel epigenetic regulator mechanism of AAT expression in the PBMC of HS. Expand
Simultaneous Detection and Viral DNA Load Quantification of Different Human Papillomavirus Types in Clinical Specimens by the High Analytical Droplet Digital PCR Method
TLDR
The data indicate that ddPCR is a valuable technique in quantifying HPV DNA load in CIN specimens and human cell lines, thereby improving clinical applications, such as patient management after primary diagnosis of HPV-related lesions with HPV-type specific assays. Expand
Successful Treatment with Intravenous and Intravascular Cidofovir for BK Virus-Associated Hemorrhagic Cystitis after Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: A Case Report
TLDR
Authors suggest further evaluations of cidofovir both in allogeneic stem cell transplantation setting and in renal allograft patients to consider its impact on BKV and nephropathy. Expand

Serological evidence of vertical transmission of JC and BK polyomaviruses in humans.
TLDR
The results suggest JC virus and BK virus can be transmitted from mother to newborn during pregnancy or soon after birth. Expand
BK virus sequences in specimens from aborted fetuses
TLDR
Results indicate that BKV can cross the placenta during pregnancy and become latent in fetal organs other than the kidney and brain (previously considered the main targets of BKv latency) and does not seem to be associated with an increased risk of abortion. Expand
Association between the JC Polyomavirus Infection and Male Infertility
TLDR
The data suggest that the JC virus should be taken into consideration as an infectious agent which is responsible for male infertility. Expand
Tracing Males From Different Continents by Genotyping JC Polyomavirus in DNA From Semen Samples
TLDR
The study indicates that the majority of semen samples found to be JCPyV‐positive, were infected with the J CPyV genotype found in the geographic area of male origin, suggesting that semen JCPYV genotyping could be employed to trace the origin continent of males. Expand
Serum IgG antibodies from healthy subjects up to 100 years old react to JC polyomavirus
TLDR
The innovative indirect ELISA with JCPyV VP1 mimotopes seems to be a useful method to detect specific IgG antibodies against this virus, without cross‐reactivity with the closely related SV40 and BKPyV polyomaviruses. Expand
Transplacental transmission of human polyomavirus BK
TLDR
The results indicate that BKV may be transmitted vertically, and the nucleotide sequence of the BK RR demonstrated that the viruses isolated from maternal and fetal tissues showed a high homology with one another and had a characteristic deletion of the R63 box compared to the archetype strain. Expand
Investigation on silent bacterial infections in specimens from pregnant women affected by spontaneous miscarriage
TLDR
Bacteria were investigated, for the first time, by quantitative real‐time PCR (qPCR) in chorionic villi tissues and PBMCs from women affected by SA and VI and may help to understand the role and knowledge of the silent infections in SA. Expand
Specific IgG Antibodies React to Mimotopes of BK Polyomavirus, a Small DNA Tumor Virus, in Healthy Adult Sera
TLDR
Data from this innovative immunological assay indicate that serum antibodies against BKPyV VP1 mimotopes are detectable in healthy subjects ranging from 18 to 90 years old, and the strong points from this investigation are the novelty of the immunological method, its simplicity of the approach, andThe specificity of BK PyV antibody reaction to VP1 Mimotopes.

Hemorrhagic Cystitis in Children Undergoing Bone Marrow Transplantation: A Putative Role for Simian Virus 40
TLDR
The detection of SV40 DNA sequences suggest that this simian polyomavirus could be involved, at least in some cases, in the HC occurring in children after BMT. Expand
Detection of Merkel Cell Polyomavirus DNA in Serum Samples of Healthy Blood Donors
TLDR
Merkel cell polyomavirus-positive samples from blood donors could represent a potential vehicle for MCPyV infection in receivers, whereas an increase in viral load may occur with multiple blood transfusions. Expand
