Nine new isolates of human T-cell leukemia-lymphoma virus (HTLV) were obtained from cells of seven patients with malignancies of mature T cells and from two clinically normal relatives of a T-cell leukemia patient. These people were from the United States, Israel, the West Indies, and Japan. The virus was detected in the fresh T cells and was isolated from the established T-cell lines. Each isolate is closely related to the first HTLV isolate, and all the new HTLV isolates were transmitted into normal human T cells obtained from the umbilical cord blood of newborns.
