Abstract: Kikai-Island is located about 350km south of the main island of Kyushu, and seems to be the endemic area of ATL virus as well as strongyloides infection. Total 40 inhabitants in Kikai-Island were tested by polyethylene tube stool cultivation method, and 57.5% of the persons were found to be positive in strongyloides infection. We assayed ATLA antibody titer among these persons, and reported that 47.8% of strongyloides carriers, whereas only 17.6% of non-carriers had positive antibody to ATLA. Then, we compared the antibody titer against strongyloides antigen between positive and negative porsons of anti-ATLA among groups of strongyloides-carriers and non-carriers. However, any relationship in antibody titer between these persons could not be observed in this study. On the other hand, patients with filariasis had been commonly observed until 1975 in Kikai-Island. We also examined both antibody titers of filaria antigen and of ATLA in persons of Kikai-Island, in order to study the possibility of the past filarial infection as a possible risk factor for ATLV infection. We obtained the results that the filarial antibody titer of ATLV-carriers was always higher than that of non-carriers, suggesting that filarial infection in the past as well as strongyloides infection in the present might have some promoting effects on ATLV infection and/or ATLV proliferation.
