Found Human T-lymphotropic virus type I 3 times.

Displaying results 1 to 10.

1. Human T-lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I)
A human, single-stranded RNA retrovirus from the subfamily Oncovirinae which causes adult T-cell leukemia and T-cell lymphoma and may also be involved in certain demyelinating diseases (diseases where the protective myelin sheath around nerve fibers are destroyed). HTLV-I is closely related to HTLV-II (60% of their genome s are identical).

2. Human T-lymphotropic virus type II (HTLV-II)
A human, single-stranded RNA retrovirus from the subfamily Oncovirinae which may cause diseases such as T-cell leukemia and T-cell lymphoma (but this has not been proven). HTLV-II is closely related to HTLV I (60% of their genome s are identical).

3. Human T-lymphotropic virus type III (HTLV-III)
An obsolete term for human immunodeficiency virus ( HIV ), which causes Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome ( AIDS ).
