Since when have military blood banks been screening all units of donated blood for HTLV-I?
March 1989.
What clinical evaluations do personnel with HTLV-I/II infection receive?

11 November 1988

Forwarded to WRAIR (Walter Reed Army Institute of Research) for further analysis by Western Blot and other highly specific confirmatory tests for HTLV-I and HTLV-II.
How many blood specimens are drawn for purposes of HTLV-I and II verification?

(1) "Negative for HTLV-I or II antibodies." (2) Consistent with HTLV-I or II infection."
True or False. A report stating "consistent with HTLV-I or II infection" implies the need for initial counseling and the drawing of additional blood samples to ascertain the type of retroviral infection.
