Human T Cell Lymphotropic/Leukemia Viruses

Several human retroviruses have been identified from hematopoietic cells. Viruses related to animal oncorna viruses cause T cell malignancies. Viruses of the lentivirus group cause the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Whether other retroviruses cause other human diseases or malignancy is a subject of intense investigation.
