  1. *The results represent the median and range (n = 56 for HAM/TSP, n = 38 for HCs and n = 10 for ATL)
  2. aHTLV-1 HBZ mRNA load = value of HBZ/value of HPRT
  3. bHTLV-1 tax mRNA load = value of tax/value of HPRT
  4. cProviral load: HTLV-1 tax copy number per cell
  5. dHBZ mRNA/DNA ratio = HTLV-1 HBZ mRNA load/Proviral load
  6. etax mRNA/DNA ratio = HTLV-1 tax mRNA load/Proviral load
