Abstract

The polyomavirus JC virus (JCV), the causative agent of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, is ubiquitous in the human population, infecting children asymptomatically. JCV is often detected in normal renal tissue and in the urine of healthy individuals. We demonstrate that renal JCV represents that which persists after primary infection.
