      @anon Testing for this could drive you to insanity. I've had both antibody and PCR tests for both 1 and 2 come back negative, and of course, no one can agree on what the window period is for testing (51 days plus or minus 21 days seems to be the norm), with some lay people saying two years.

Human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV) testing is used to detect an infection by HTLV-I or HTLV-II. When the virus enters the body, it preferentially infects T-cell body's immune system responds by producing antibodies that target the virus.

Most individuals who are infected do not develop an active illness, but a rare few will develop a condition related to a disorder of. HTLV-1 is an abbreviation for human T-cell lymphotropic virus type 1, also called human T-cell leukemia type 1, a virus that has been implicated in several kinds of diseases, including tropical spastic paraparesis, and as a virus cancer link for leukemia (see adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma).HTLV-1 has six reported subtypes (subtypes A to F).

The great majority Class: incertae sedis. HTLV I/II ANTIBODY: Samples that are initially reactive are sent to a Reference Lab for HTLV I/II western blot testing. (Ann. Intern. Med. (6)‐, ).

HTLV-III antibody testing: efficacy and impact on public health: January through June citations in English. [Karen Patrias; Christine Parker; National Library of Medicine (U.S.)]. All 75 men tested had negative ELISA results for antibody to HTLV-III/LAV.

Two of 59 women tested had positive antibody test results for HTLV-III/LAV with both ELISA and Western blot. Antibody results for these women were again positive with ELISA and Western blot when repeated 6 weeks later.

The third member of the family of human T-cell leukemia (lymphotropic) retroviruses, HTLV-III, has emerged as the likely etiologic agent of the acquired. This ELISA for HTLV-III antibodies will be a useful screening test among blood donors and populations at risk for AIDS, will aid in the diagnosis of suspected AIDS, and will help in defining the spectrum of diseases that are etiologically related to HTLV-III.

(JAMA ;)Cited by:   However, there is agreement that testing heated serum for HTLV-III/LAV antibody by enzyme immuno- assays often yields false-positive results ().

No HTLV-III/LAV vaccine has been developed, and no drugs have been shown to be safe and effective for therapy.

Human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) is etiologically associated with adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL); tropical spastic paraparesis (TSP), a demyelinating neurological disorder; and HTLV-I-associated myelopathy (HAM).

Two types of HTLV testing are available - antibody and molecular testing. Alternate Name: HTLV I/II Antibody, Confirmatory Assay Blood Test; Test Instructions: Please do not exercise prior to testing.

Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is defined as an HIV infection with either a CD4 + T cell count below cells per µL or the occurrence of specific diseases associated with HIV infection. In the absence of specific treatment, around half of people infected with HIV develop AIDS within ten years.

HIV AGENT SUMMARY STATEMENT AGENT: HIVS INCLUDING HTLV-III, LAV, HIV-1, AND HIV In the periodseveral health-care workers (HCWs) who had no recognized risk behavior for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) were reported to have HIV infection(10)(11)(12)(13)(14)(15).Only one of these HCWs was identified as a laboratory worker.

The introduction of antibody testing has reduced the risk of HIV transmission to blood recipients by a substantial margin. In other words, instead of nearly 4, recipients of viremic units, the baseline calcula- tions project the transfusion of only about (3,/34,) HIV- infected units each year.

It was further stated that HTLV-III proteins had been found in 85% of sera from AIDS patients and that HTLV-III is related to HTLV-I and -II, retroviruses previously discovered by Gallo.

In contrast, the LAV described earlier by Barre-Sinoussi and Montagnier was not related to HTLV-I or -II, and antibodies to it were present in only % of.The nontransfused hemophilia-B patient was negative for antibody to HTLV-III by both methods. One patient with clinical AIDS tested positive as did six of seven with chronic unexplained.

The prevalence of specific antibodies to HTLV-III/LAV retrovirus was investigated during in a large group of subjects at risk for AIDS living in the Florence area.
