Detect HTLV



brief description

Human T-cell Lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) is a retrovirus, implicated as the causative agent of adult T-cell leukemia/ lymphoma. It is also linked with a type of neuromyelopathy. A second human T-cell lymphotropic virus, designated HTLV-II, shares similar structural features, antigenic properties and genome organization. However, HTLV-II is not clearly associated with any specific disease. Serological cross-reactivity between HTLV-I and HTLV-II is highly variable, necessitating the inclusion of antigens to both HTLV-I and HTLV-II to ensure detection of antibodies to both HTLV-I and HTLV-II. The presence of anti-HTLV-I and/or HTLV-II antibodies in the blood indicates that the blood probably contains virus and should not be used for transfusion or for manufacture of injectable products.

intended use

The Adaltis DETECT-HTLV EIA Test Kit is a solid phase enzyme immunoassay utilizing a mixture of synthetic peptides for the detection of antibodies to HTLV-I and HTLV-II in human serum or plasma.
