A new agglutination test for serum antibodies to adult T-cell leukemia
Natural antibodies to human retrovirus HTLV in a cluster of Japanese patients with adult T-cell leukemia
In a family study of a female adult T-cell leukemia
HTLV-I is a human type C retrovirus2 which has been etiologically associated with Adult T-Cell Leukemia
(ATL)and with a demyelinating neurologic disorder termed Tropical Spastic Paraparesis, and/or HTLV-I Associated Myelopathy (TSP/HAM).
Adult T-cell leukemia
lymphoma (ATLL), a T-cell lymphoma caused by the human T-cell leukemia virus type I, has a broad morphologic, immunophenotypic, and clinical spectrum.
Establishment of an etiologic relationship between the human T-cell leukemia/lymphoma virus (HTLV) and adult T-cell leukemia
Several cases of adult T-cell leukemia
have been described in patients of Romanian origin (9-14).
Food and Drug Administration for three indications: T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, including CTCL; chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and related leukemias including prolymphocytic leukemia, adult T-cell leukemia
, and hairy cell leukemia; and for treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
Monoclonal integration of human T-cell leukemia provirus in all primary tumors of adult T-cell leukemia
suggests causative role of human T-cell leukemia virus in this disease.
