JC virus Ab [Presence] in Serum or Plasma by Immunoassay
LP29657-1 JC virus
JC (John Cunningham) virus is a neurotropic polyomavirus and infects up to 65% of all children by the age of 14. The virus causes no disease unless a patient's immune system is weakened or destroyed, such as in AIDS patients, or in patients who take drugs to prevent rejection of a transplanted organ. In those patients, JC virus can cause progressive multifocal leukoenchephalopathy (PML), a fatal brain disease due to an infection of the brain and spinal cord. The JC virus is also the main cause of nephropathy among kidney transplant patients on immunosuppressive therapy. The JC virus should not be confused with Jamestown Canyon virus, which is sometimes abbreviated the same way, or Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Source: Regenstrief LOINC

- Change Reason
- The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.; The EIA method, which was always intended to cover more than just enzyme-linked immunoassay and whose display name for the long common name has always been Immunoassay, was renamed IA in order to eliminate ambiguity about whether the method has a broader meaning than just enzyme-linked immunoassay. Likewise, EIA.rapid was renamed IA.rapid. These changes were approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.
