Description
The research interest of authors has focused on the risk assessment of environmental pollutants such as cadmium and dioxin-related compounds, and epidemiology of human T-cell lymphotropic virus type-I (HTLV-I) infection. The authors (1) showed that low-molecular weight proteinuria and reduced glomerular filtration rate caused by environmental cadmium were strongly associated with shortened survival, (2) clarified serological risk factors for development of adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma among asymptomatic HTLV-I carriers (plasma levels of soluble interleukin2-receptor>=500U/ml and HTLV-I antibody titer>=1,024), (3) conducted the first prospective study of HTLV-I infection and development of malignances other than ATL, and found a significantly reduced risk of gastric cancer among HTLV-I carriers, and (4) by a cooperative study, clarified a new pathogenicity of HTLV-I (association with Sjögren’s syndrome).
