Sera obtained from 3,472 persons in Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia were tested for the presence of antibody to adult T-cell leukemia-associated antigen by the gelatin particle agglutination test and indirect immunofluorescence. Among these, only two seropositives were identified. One was a 30-year-old male Malaysian of Indian origin. The other was a 42-year-old female Thai who resided in Bangkok. These results suggested that the infection of human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 might not be endemic in these countries.
