The presence of specific antibodies against human polyomavirus 12, Saint Louis polyomavirus and New Jersey polyomavirus was investigated by using virus-like particle-based ELISAs with serum samples from 706 Italians aged 1- to 100-years-old. The findings indicate that these polyomaviruses circulate widely in humans, with peak seroprevalence, observed at adulthood, of 97.3%, 93.3%, 57.5%, for human polyomavirus 12, Saint Louis polyomavirus and New Jersey polyomavirus, respectively.

Abstract

The presence of specific antibodies against human polyomavirus 12, Saint Louis polyomavirus and New Jersey polyomavirus was investigated by using virus-like particle-based ELISAs with serum samples from 706 Italians aged 1- to 100-years-old. The findings indicate that these polyomaviruses circulate widely in humans, with peak seroprevalence, observed at adulthood, of 97.3%, 93.3%, 57.5%, for human polyomavirus 12, Saint Louis polyomavirus and New Jersey polyomavirus, respectively.
