    Microorganisms of the genus Methylobacterium are facultative methylotrophic, gram-negative rods that are ubiquitous in nature and rarely cause human disease, mostly in subjects with preexisting causes of immune depression. Methylobacterium fujisawaense, first proposed as a new species in 1988,...

    It has been 30 years since a 'new' leukaemia termed adult T-cell leukaemia (ATL) was described in Japan, and more than 25 years since the isolation of the retrovirus, human T-cell leukaemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1), that causes this disease. We discuss HTLV-1 infectivity and how the HTLV-1 Tax...

    One of the challenges of studying anticancer therapies is that effects observed in cell lines or mouse models are not always good indicators of clinical trial results. The mouse model of acute promyelocytic leukaemia has bucked this trend, as targeted therapies such as retinoic acid and arsenic...
