Background Viral infections are pervasive and leading causes of myocarditis. Immune-suppression after chemotherapy increases opportunistic infections, but the incidence of virus-induced myocarditis is unknown. Objective An unbiased, blinded screening for RNA viruses was performed after chemotherapy with correlation to cardiac function. Methods Hi...

... RNA virus sequence reads were also detected using this broad analysis (Figure 5). One of the most prominent was the retrovirus HERV K (30). ...

... of the most prominent was the retrovirus HERV K (30). For retrovirus sequences, the correlation increased from r = 0.034 for LVEF measured pre chemotherapy (P = 0.8904, nonsignificant) to r = 0.453 post chemotherapy with a borderline trend toward significance (P = 0.0591, Figure 5C). Retrovirus sequences detected were predominantly human endogenous retrovirus K (HERV K), a retrovirus commonly detected in the human genome. ...

... levels of phage are reported in the circulating blood in patients with increased gut permeability in leukemic patients where "leaky gut" is suspected to allow phages to translocate from the gut to the plasma (43). In this study, no correlation was uncovered between the detected phage sequences and insect virus reads with LVEF post chemotherapy ( Figure 5). No correlation was found between anellovirus and reduced LVEF. ...
