Proviral load in rabbit TO9 that developed a renal nephroblastoma. Rabbit TO9 was inoculated with cell-free HTLV-I prepared from HTLV-I-producing rabbit cell line RH/K30. The rabbit was necropsied at 8 months post inoculation due to renomegaly. (A) HTLV-I proviral load was determined in PBMC, selected organs, and in both neoplastic (tumor) and non-neoplastic (kidney) regions of the kidney (B) Rabbit kidney, gross photograph of nephroblastoma.
