I see the desperate need for a similar initiative in the HTLV-1 endemic context where I currently work and research. I hope that the UK can set a precedent. Thanks Amy!

This needs to be a standard test given to expectant mothers where there is risk

As Amy said, screening is important to prevent this disease and will be lower screening than treating the disease

So sorry for your loss! Expectant mothers should definitely have the courtesy of being tested if statistics show an increase chance of carrying this disease.
