Although recent studies indicate a high prevalence (12-92%) of TT virus (TTV) DNA in sera of healthy Japanese individuals, there is a paucity of information regarding the route of transmission of this virus. Analyzing the nucleotide sequences of the existing polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primers of TTV DNA, we developed a set of noble primers (HM-1) and looked for the prevalence of TTV DNA in sera from 39 normal healthy Japanese individuals using PCR. The existence of TTV DNA was also checked… CONTINUE READING
