Twenty-five brains with definite, and three brains with possible, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML), including six brains of AIDS patients, were studied with special regard to the detection of papovaviruses. Formalin-fixed serial paraffin sections were immunostained with monospecific anti-JC virus (JCV) and genus-specific anti-simian virus (SV) 40 antisera, and hybridized in situ with DNA probes for JCV and SV 40, respectively. Immunocytochemistry (ICC) and in situ hybridization… CONTINUE READING
