Plasma loads of torque teno virus (TTV) among individuals differ extensively beginning early in life, suggesting a role for innate immunity. Here, congenital mannose-binding lectin deficiencies, but not deficiencies in respiratory ciliary function, correlated with increased TTV loads. Notably, however, the presence of either disorder was associated with particularly high TTV loads.
