  1. Mortality among inhabitants of an HTLV-I endemic area in Japan.

    Article - En anglais

    A community-based cohort study was conducted to clarify the risk of human T-cell leukemia virus type I (HTLV-I) infection for cause-specific deaths.

    A total of 1,997 individuals (751 men and 1,246 women) aged 30 or older in A-Island, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan who had voluntarily attended annual mass health examinations, including serum HTLV-I antibody test, were followed up for a mean period of 5.3 years.

    In a Cox proportional hazards analysis adjusted for age at baseline, the HTLV-I seropositivity was found to be associated with mortality from all causes in men (hazard ratio (HR) 1.89 ; 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.01-3.54) and women (HR 1.94 ; 95% CI 1.16-3.22).
