Human T-lymphotropic Virus Type I (HTLV-I) Proviral Load and Clinical Features in Iranian HAM/TSP Patients: Comparison of HTLV-I Proviral Load in HAM/TSP Patients
which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Objective(s): HTLV-I-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP) is the most common neurological manifestation of HTLV-I. The northeast of Iran is an endem-ic area for this virus. Host genetic and viral factors play important roles in developing HAM/TSP. T...متن کامل
Bronchoalveolar lymphocytosis correlates with human T lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) proviral DNA load in HTLV-I carriers.
BACKGROUND A study was undertaken to investigate the pathogenesis of pulmonary involvement in human T lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) carriers. METHODS The bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) cell profile of 30 HTLV-I carriers (15 asymptomatic HTLV-I carriers (AHCs) and 15 symptomatic HTLV-I carriers (SHCs)) with chronic inflammatory diseases of respiratory tract and eight patients with HTLV-I as...متن کامل
HLA alleles determine human T-lymphotropic virus-I (HTLV-I) proviral load and the risk of HTLV-I-associated myelopathy.
The risk of disease associated with persistent virus infections such as HIV-I, hepatitis B and C, and human T-lymphotropic virus-I (HTLV-I) is strongly determined by the virus load. However, it is not known whether a persistent class I HLA-restricted antiviral cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) response reduces viral load and is therefore beneficial or causes tissue damage and contributes to disease ...متن کامل
P178: Can Human T-Lymphotropic Virus Proviral Load Predict the Severity of Clinical Features in HAM/TSP Patients?
HTLV-1 is the causative agent for a neurologic disease named HTLV-I- associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP). Paraparesis of the lower limbs which appears gradually is the most common clinical feature of this disease. The indirect involvement of the nervous system by lymphocytes is more probable than the direct attack of the virus to the neurons. The proviral load (PVL) is ...متن کامل
