To clarify the intrinsic factors involved in the manifestation of adult T‐cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL) in Japan, a third nation‐wide study on ATL was conducted by the T‐ and B‐cell Malignancy Study Group. General clinico‐epidemiological findings on ATL and infectious modes of transmission of human T‐lymp ho tropic virus type I (HTLV‐I) from 181 ATL patients and their relatives were analyzed and the frequency of HLA antigens in 64 ATL patients was compared with that of 48 relatives of ATL pro… 
Adult T-Cell Leukemia/Lymphoma and Cluster of HTLV-I Associated Diseases in Brazilian Settings
TLDR
It is demonstrated that mothers who provide surrogate breast-milk appear to be an important source of HTLV-I transmission and ATL development in Brazil.

TLDR
The results of this pilot study indicate that black patients with ATL may have increased frequencies of certain class I HLA when compared with a racially similar HTLV-I-positive reference population.
Adult T-cell Leukemia/Lymphoma (ATL) in Japan
TLDR
Several trial intervention programs for the prevention of ATL in Japan, such as controls of vertical transmission from mother to child through breast milk, are now in progress in ATL-endemic areas in Japan.

Molecular cloning of human T-cell leukaemia virus type I (HTLV-I) proteins and the role of HTLV-I infection in multiple drug resistance (MDR)
TLDR
The demonstration of stimulation and trans-activation of the mdr-1 gene suggests potential molecular mechanisms for the development of drug resistant cell phenotypes induced by HTLV-I infection.
Mother-to-Child HTLV-1 Transmission: Unmet Research Needs
TLDR
Prevention of MTCT is expected to contribute disproportionately to reducing both the incidence of HTLV-1 and the burden of HT LV associated diseases, and it is important to understand all the variables involved in this route of infection.

TLDR
The challenge in the next decade will be to develop and implement therapeutic interventions among carriers to prevent such diseases as well as to curtail transmission within endemic populations.
