Abstract

We detected viral DNA in 20 out of 30 cases of MCC and in 0 out of 19 control samples. The presence of viral DNA in 66.6% of our MCC tissue specimens confirms the high prevalence of MCPyV in MCC patients described in American, German, French and Hungarian patient collections.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
