We studied tumor necrosis factor (TNF), lymphotoxin-alpha (LT-alpha), and TNF receptors type 1 (TNFR-1) and type 2 (TNFR-2) gene polymorphisms as well as HLA class II DRB1 alleles in Japanese patients with human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) associated myelopathy (HAM) (n = 51), patients with adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL) (n = 48), asymptomatic HTLV-I carriers (n = 50), and HTLV-I seronegative, normal controls (n = 112). There were significant differences between HAM patients… CONTINUE READING
