HTLV-I/II infections in Spain.
Antibodies to HTLV-I/II were investigated in sera from 7521 individuals living in Spain.
They were classified in four major groups: a) subjects at high risk of retroviral infections e.g. parenteral drug addicts, homosexuals, prostitutes, and multiple-transfused individuals; b) patients suffering illness associated with HTLV-I in endemic regions; c) immigrants from endemic areas; and d) blood donors.
Sera were collected from 1984 to December 1991.
