Serologic survey for HTLV-I in Kanagawa Prefecture



Serologic survey for HTLV-I in Kanagawa Prefecture



Tokai Journal of Experimental and Clinical Medicine 22(1): 7-8



To investigate the seroprevalence of HTLV-I in Kanagawa Prefecture (central Japan), we tested the sera of 8,264 healthy volunteers and 2,414 pregnant women. Of the 8,264 healthy volunteers, 66 (0.80%) were seropositive. The seroprevalence of HTLV-I in the pregnant women was 14/2,414 (0.58%), and this rate was almost identical to that in the healthy female volunteers 15 to 44 years of age (0.59%). These figures indicate that the seroprevalence of HTLV-I in Kanagawa Prefecture is very low and that sexual contact may not be an important contributory factor.
