Roossinck explained that fungal viruses are not readily transmitted among fungi, so the variation in the viral genome probably is occurring as the virus evolves within each fungal isolate, providing a marker. "So we believe the differences in the ...
"We found that a surprisingly low number of patients -- only about 20 percent -- had T cells specific for the 'KLL' region of the virus. This suggests that about 80 percent of patients aren't making T cells that recognize this very prominent target ...
