Origin of Human T-Lymphotropic Virus Type 1 in Rural Côte d’Ivoire
Adjogoua, Edgard Valerie
Leendertz, Siv Aina J.
Simian T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (STLV-1) strains occasionally infect humans. However, the frequency of such infections is unknown. We show that direct transmission of STLV-1 from nonhuman primates to humans may be responsible for a substantial proportion of human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 infections in rural Côte d’Ivoire, where primate hunting is common.
