  1. Transfusion-transmitted human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I infection in Taiwan : a true risk and occasional coinfection with hepatitis C virus shown in a prospective study.

    Article - En anglais

    To study the incidence of human T-cell lymphotropic virus (HTLV) after blood tranfusion in Taiwan, serum samples from 699 patients in a prospective study were examined for seroreactivity of anti-HTLV.

    By an enzyme immunoassay, 9 of the 699 recipients were repeatedly positive.

    Serial serum samples of these 9 patients were then confirmed with a Western blot analysis and with a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for HTLV-1 genome.

    Four were already positive for anti-HTLV before tranfusion, 1 carried antibodies to HTLV-I transiently after transfusion, and only 4 cases had de nova seroconversions.

    These patients and their family members were called back and tested for HTLV-1 genome in the peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) and plasma.
