Today HTLV-1 and possibly closely related HTLV-2 are associated with a variety of human neurological diseases, and research activities in this field may show that human retroviruses can cause a variety of human diseases in addition to those affecting the nervous system. The specific experimental models discussed are the wild mouse ecotropic virus, Moloney murine leukemia virus, and the study of retrovirus infection in nonhuman primates.
