The human JC polyomavirus (JCPyV) is an ubiquitous viral agent infecting approximately 60% of humans. Recently, JCPyV sequences have been detected in semen samples. The aim of this investigation was to test whether semen JCPyV genotyping can be employed to trace the origin continent of males. Semen DNA samples (n = 170) from males of different Continents were investigated by PCR for the polymorphic JCPyV viral capsid protein 1 (VP1) sequences, followed by DNA sequencing. JCPyV sequences were… Expand
Footprints of BK and JC polyomaviruses in specimens from females affected by spontaneous abortion
TLDR
There is no association of JCPyV or BKPyV with SA, and statistical analyses do not indicate an association between these polyomaviruses and SA. Expand
DNA Sequences of Small DNA Tumor Viruses, Merkel Cell Polyomavirus and Human Papillomavirus, in Spontaneous Abortion Specimens
TLDR
Data from the present study may help to better understand the role of MCPyV/HPV in SA, and was quantified, for the first time, using ddPCR/qPCR in SA and VI chorionic villi and PBMCs. Expand
Investigation of BK/JC Polyomavirus Presence in Infertile Male Patients
TLDR
Investigating whether BK polyomavirus (BKV) and JCV are associated with male infertility found results can be an important finding in elucidating the etiology of idiopathic infertility. Expand
Merkel Cell Polyomavirus Is Associated with Anal Infections in Men Who Have Sex with Men
TLDR
Based on the high prevalence of M CPyV in the anal/rectal swabs from MSM patients and on the well-known oncogenic properties of MCPyV, sexual transmission and possible involvement of HPyVs in the pathogenesis of diseases of the anal canal should be further studied. 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
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
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
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
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
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 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
Molecular analysis of JC virus genotypes circulating among the Italian healthy population
TLDR
The data indicate that JCV genotype epidemiology in Italy is quite different from that of other European countries; moreover, differences between the various Italian regions have been observed. Expand
Parent-to-child transmission is relatively common in the spread of the human polyomavirus JC virus
TLDR
Findings indicated that JCV is transmitted frequently from parents to children, roughly estimated that 50% of JCV transmission occurs by this route and that the other 50% occurs outside the family. Expand

TLDR
A possible JCV genotype selection in response to pressure by immunomodulatory drugs is hypothesized to hypothesize. Expand

TLDR
PML-associated JCV of genotypes 1, 2, 4, and 3 was found in 56 brain or cerebrospinal fluid samples, and infection with JCV genotype 4 could represent a lower risk for PML. Expand
High incidence of urinary JC virus excretion in nonimmunosuppressed older patients.
TLDR
It is suggested that JC virus is frequently reactivated in older individuals and reached the highest value in the group aged 60-89 years. Expand
Documenting the Epidemiologic Patterns of Polyomaviruses in Human Populations by Studying Their Presence in Urban Sewage
TLDR
The detection of human polyomaviruses JC virus (JCV) and BK virus (BKV) but not SV40 in a high percentage of urban sewage samples obtained from widely divergent geographical areas in Europe and Africa is reported using a nested-PCR procedure. Expand
Potential Transmission of Human Polyomaviruses through the Gastrointestinal Tract after Exposure to Virions or Viral DNA
TLDR
Data indicate that the ingestion of contaminated water or food could represent a possible portal of entrance of these viruses or polyomavirus DNA into the human population. Expand
JC virus genotyping offers a new paradigm in the study of human populations
TLDR
A study is described in which the origin of the modern Japanese was extensively investigated using the JCV genotyping method, and the origins of people who carried J CV genotypes to the Japanese Archipelago are discussed. Expand
Co-infection with two JC virus genotypes in brain, cerebrospinal fluid or urinary tract detected by direct cycle sequencing of PCR products.
TLDR
Evidence from direct cycle sequencing of PCR products that different genotypes of JCV can be found in a single tissue sample is provided, indicating that co-infection with two viral types does not depend on severe immunocompromise. Expand
