Is it the Lower Respiratory Tract a Real Replication Site for KI Polyomavirus?

Recently two novel KI and WU polyomaviruses have been identified from human respiratory specimens. The spectrum of clinical manifestations and their role in respiratory tract are currently unknown. Here, to determine the prevalence and codetection of KIPyV and WUPyV polyomaviruses in the lower respiratory tract specimens of immunocompromised patients eighty-seven bronchoalveolar lavages or bronchoaspirates from 73 immunocompromised patients with acute respiratory symptoms were screened by quantitative real-time PCR.
