The p24 protein is the major core protein of LAV/HTLV III which is the putative agent of the lymphadenopathy syndrome. By the use of an anti-p24 monoclonal antibody we have studied the presence of LAV/HTLV III infected cells in 20 lymph nodes obtained from lymphadenopathy syndrome patients: 14 lymph nodes were characterized by prominent follicular hyperplasia consistent with the early phase of the syndrome and six lymph nodes presented marked regressive changes. Cells positive for p24 were de...Expand abstract
