Abstract: There has been many atomic bomb survivors in Nagasaki which is also one of the endemic areas of adult T-cell leukemia (ATL). ATL is known as virus (HTLV-I) induced leukemia. Thirty-seven cases of ATL were found among the atomic bomb survivors during the period from 1950 to 1983 by reviewing their blood samples. Seventeen cases of them were developed from the cohort study samples of Radiation Effect Research Foundation (RERF). The radiation effect for the incidence of ATL was calculated using this cohort samples. Increased risk of ATL among the atomic bomb surviors could not be found in this study.
