Widely disseminated infection with the human polyomaviruses JC and BK is followed by lifelong asymptomatic viral persistence that can be reactivated under prolonged immunosuppression to fatal CNS and urogenital disease. In an attempt to understand the pathogenesis of polyomavirus diseases, we asked whether leukocytes are involved in polyomavirus infection in the immunocompetent host. Peripheral blood leukocytes from 29 immunocompetent individuals and umbilical cord blood from 10 newborn… CONTINUE READING
