Spontaneous DNA synthesis in HTLV-1 associated myelopathy

Blood lymphocytes are set-up in culture and harvested after the time indicated (they are pulsed with radioactive thymidine for the last 8 hours of culture). In this figure, the ratio of DNA synthesis between the tested individuals and a healthy control (HC) is shown on the Y axis. Time span is from 1 to 8 days. Results are median of 3 to 6 individuals depending on days in culture. (Al-Fahim and Oger, personal results)
