Descriptions

LP193326-8   HTLV II gp46-II Ab
HTLV-I and HTLV-II are human retroviruses associated with adult T-cell leukemias and lymphomas and HTLV-associated myelopathy. Patients infected with HTLV-I may remain asymptomatic for up to 20 years, with fewer than 5% of infected patients developing myelopathies or adult T-cell leukemia. Adult T-cell leukemia is associated with skin infiltrates and hypercalcemia. HTLV-I virus is tropic for T4 lymphocytes and is transmitted by sexual contact, blood products, injection drug abuse, maternal-fetal transmission, and by breast milk. HTLV-II has some association with neoplasia involving CD8 T lymphocytes. Information from Jacobs and DeMott Laboratory Test Handbook, 5th edition, DS Jacobs, WR DeMott and DK Oxley, 2001.
