Retroviral Diseases

Retroviruses induce diseases that do not fit easily into any of the major categories and different tissues can influence the type of disease that develops the first retrovirus associated with disease was equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV). Anemic cats contain reduced numbers of BFU-E and CFU-E, and FeLV infection suppresses the generation of these precursors in vitro. Endogenous retroviral proteins are acting as auto antigen in liver disease patients. While murine retroviruses are inactivated by human complement and are not capable of causing human disease.

 

Retroviruses are a family of viruses that are grouped together based on how they are structured and how they replicate within a host. Besides human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes AIDS, there a two other retroviruses that can cause human illness. One is called human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) and the other is called human T-lymphotropic virus type 2 (HTLV-II).
