HTLV‐1 and blood donation
Human T‐cell leukaemia virus type 1 (HTLV‐1) is a human retrovirus that causes adult T‐cell lymphoma and HTLV‐associated myelopathy. In this issue, Rosadas et al. use data from a recent WHO report to describe how blood banks test for HTLV‐1 and how this testing contributes to public health surveillance for the virus.
