JC virus (JCV) is an ubiquitous human polyomavirus that frequently resides in the kidneys of healthy individuals and is excreted in the urine of a large proportion of the adult population. Polyomaviruses are associated with disease largely in immunocompromised individuals (progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy). Colorectal cancers can show chromosome instability and it was hypothesized that JCV may account for some of this instability. We screened urine from 45 healthy donors and 233… CONTINUE READING
