Detection and isolation of type C retrovirus particles from fresh and cultured lymphocytes of a patient with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma
Retrovirus particles with type C morphology were found in two T-cell lymphoblastoid cell lines, HUT 102 and CTCL-3, and in fresh peripheral blood lymphocytes obtained from a patient with a cutaneousExpand

Fidelity of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase.
The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) shows extensive genetic variation and undergoes rapid evolution. The fidelity of purified HIV-1 reverse transcriptase was measured during DNAExpand

Seroprevalence and epidemiological correlates of HTLV-I infection in U.S. blood donors.
Screening for human T-lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) antibodies was performed on sera from 39,898 blood donors at eight blood centers in geographically distinct areas of the United States. TenExpand

Isolation of a new type C retrovirus (HTLV) in primary uncultured cells of a patient with Sézary T-cell leukaemia
Retroviruses have been isolated from many animal species and several have been shown to be the aetiological agents of naturally occurring leukaemias, lymphomas and sarcomas (for recent reviews seeExpand

Infection of peripheral blood mononuclear cells and cell lines by cell-free human T-cell lymphoma/leukemia virus type I.
Previous studies of in vitro infection by human T-cell lymphoma/leukemia virus type I (HTLV-I) have required cocultivation of target cells with HTLV-I cell lines or vesicular stomatitis virusExpand

Prognostic significance of K-ras codon 12 mutations in patients with resected stage I and II non-small-cell lung cancer.
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the prognostic importance of codon 12 K-ras mutations in patients with early-stage non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). PATIENTS AND METHODS WeExpand

Detection and cloning of new HTLV-related endogenous sequences in man.
Human T-cell leukemia virus (HTLV) type I-related endogenous sequences (HRES) have been cloned from a human genomic library. HRES-1/1 is present in DNA of all normal donors examined. By nucleotideExpand

Multiplex detection of four pathogenic retroviruses using molecular beacons.
We describe a multiplex nucleic acid assay that identifies and determines the abundance of four different pathogenic retroviruses (HIV-1, HIV-2, and human T-lymphotrophic virus types I and II).Expand

Enzymatic amplification of HTLV-I viral sequences from peripheral blood mononuclear cells and infected tissues.
Human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) and human T-cell lymphotropic virus type II (HTLV-II) have been associated with adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL) and a rare T-cell variant of hairyExpand

Presence of human immunodeficiency virus DNA in laser smoke.
Concentrated tissue culture pellets infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) containing 1 x 10(7) cells/ml were vaporized by means of a carbon dioxide laser. The vaporous debris resultingExpand
