Reagents, Serology, Virus, Retrovirus, Human T-Cell Lymphotropic Virus-II
Definition : Serology reagents intended to detect and/or identify antigens or serum antibody titers to human T-cell lymphotropic virus (also called human T-cell leukemia/lymphoma virus) type II (HTLV-II). HTLV-II retrovirus is a tumor-producing RNA virus of the subfamily Oncovirinae that may cause leukemia and other hematological diseases. Tests using these reagents are not widely utilized; these reagents may have questionable clinical usefulness, and easier or less expensive tests may be available.
