PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

JC Virus & Cancer

Interesting article. I'm familiar with a case where the patient battled Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, Hodgkins Lymphoma and finally Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy. He died 3 days ago. He constantly had severe colon pain and strange bowel habits for years prior to any cancer diagnosis. Nothing could ever be found by colonoscopy, barium enema or MRI. Possibly JCV was lurking in his gastrointestinal tract for years?
