LUBIAN CABALLERO, Ana Luisa et al. Seroprevalencia de la infección por HTLV-1 en diferentes grupos de riesgo estudiados en Cuba. Rev cubana med [online]. 1998, vol.37, n.4, pp.199-204. ISSN 0034-7523.

In the period between 1991 and 1996, 26 352 serum samples from different risk groups and blood donors, were studied to know the seroprevalence of antibodies against the human T-lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I), and also as a continuation of researches carried out between 1989 and 1990. The ELISA DAVIH-HTLV-I system was used for the antibodies investigation, and as a certifying test, the Western Blot DAVIH-Blot HTLV-I was used too, both from the Cuban DAVIH Laboratories. The presence of anti HTLV-I antibodies was confirmed in 10 persons, and in most of them the epidemiologic study could elucidate the probable way of contagion. The seropositivity index observed was of 0,037 %, and is low if compared with the seroprevalence rates reported for the Caribbean area.
