  1. Seroepidemiological survey of HTLV-I infection in French Polynesia, Cook Islands and Fiji.

    Article - En anglais

    Different population groups of French Polynesia, Cook Islands and Fiji were screened for Human T-Lymphotropic Virus type I (HTLV-I) antibodies.

    Among 1487 individuals sampled in French Polynesia, twelve were considered Western Blot (WB) indeterminate and one was considered WB-positive for HTLV-I infection.

    This positive subject originated from France and was a blood donor.

    Out of 196 Polynesians of the Cook Islands, one was WB-indeterminate.

    Among populations sampled in Fiji, one of 222 Melanesians was found WB-indeterminate and one of 211 Indians was WB-indeterminate.
