*PTLV, primate T-lymphotropic virus; STLV, simian T-lymphotropic virus. Nonhuman primates are coded as follows: the first letter of the genus is followed by the first 2 letters of the species name: Cag, C. agilis; Cmo, C. mona; Cni, C. nictitans.; Lal, L. albigena. The last 2 letters in the code indicate the study site: AB, Abat; NL, Ngoila; NY, Nyabissan.
†Subtype not determined.
