The organizers cordially invite you to participate in the 17th International Conference on Human Retrovirology: HTLV and Related Viruses HTLV 2015 to be held June 18 to 21, 2015 in Trois-Ilets, Martinique, France (French West Indies).
HTLV-1 currently infects nearly 20 million individuals worldwide and is responsible for different pathologies including Adult T-cell Leukemia and HTLV-1-associated myelopathy. Studies on newly discovered human retroviruses as well as recent data on virus-host interactions will be presented within the framework of the congress program. Moreover, the conference will offer an overview of current biomedical research, epidemiology and clinical research in important areas linked to HTLV.
is an open access, online journal that publishes stringently peer-reviewed, high-impact articles on basic retrovirus research.
Retroviruses are pleiotropically found in animals. Well-described examples include avian, murine and primate retroviruses. Two human retroviruses are especially important pathogens. These are the human immunodeficiency virus, HIV, and the human T-cell leukemia virus, HTLV. HIV causes AIDS while HTLV-I is the etiological agent for adult T-cell leukemia. There is a large amount of basic research being conducted on HIV and HTLV-I spanning gene expression, virus structure-assembly, integration, replication, and pathogenesis. intends to cover these areas of human and animal retrovirus research.
