Comparison of HBZ mRNA load with tax mRNA load among HTLV-1 infected individuals in different clinical status. The ratio of HBZ mRNA/tax mRNA was significantly increased in ATL patients (median 700,512.24, range 23.11 – 4,308,413.02) than HAM/TSP patients (median 4,932.41, range 295.63–56,082.14) or HCs (median 35,602.96, range 1,804.77–137,999.33). The statistical differences between groups were calculated with a Mann Whitney U test.
