The result is hemolysis of the red cells and anemia with its symptoms. They're IgM antibodies. ...Read more
What is the origin of human t-lymphotrophic virus? Did it originate from primates (simian viruses?)?
Probably: The human t-lymphotropic virus type i is a human RNA retrovirus that is known to cause adult t-cell leukemia and lymphoma, and a demyelinating disease called htlv-i associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis. Htlv-i is one of a group of closely related primate t lymphotropic viruses. The ones that infect old-world primates are called simian t-lymphotropic viruses. ...Read more
