BK virus (BKV), a common human polyomavirus infection latent in the kidneys, can reactivate with immunosuppression to cause renal disease. Some have suggested that BKV may contribute to the development of bladder cancer, and BKV sequences have been reported from bladder tumors. To further examine the role of BKV in human bladder cancer, a series of bladder tumors was investigated for BKV genomic sequences. Fresh-frozen specimens from 76 transitional cell carcinoma tissues and 46 paired adjacent… CONTINUE READING
