    The human neurotropic JC virus (JCV) is most commonly acquired during childhood, and, because no clinical illness has been associated with primary infection, is presumed to be asymptomatic. In the immunocompromised host, JCV is responsible for progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). We...

    In the last decade, evidence has accumulated to support the hypothesis that both mild and moderate elevations of serum prolactin (PRL) participate in the clinical expression and pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Hyperprolactinemia (HPRL) has been found in 20�30% of...
