Kaplan-Meier survival curves showing disease-free survival for one noninfectious and three infectious diseases, by human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV) status, through visits 2 and 3 of prospective observation. HTLV-I–infected (triangles) and HTLV-II–infected (squares) participants are compared to HLTV-seronegative participants (diamonds), respectively. Panels are as follows: A) pneumonia; B) acute bronchitis; C) bladder or kidney infection; and D) hypertension. The vertical axis scale has been com

HTLV-I–infected (triangles) and HTLV-II–infected (squares) participants are compared to HLTV-seronegative participants (diamonds), respectively. Panels are as follows: A) pneumonia; B) acute bronchitis; C) bladder or kidney infection; and D) hypertension. The vertical axis scale has been compressed because of the lower overall incidence of pneumonia.
