Abstract

Multi-locus sequence typing (MLST) was applied to all unique serotype 6C and 6D, and a random selection of serotype 6B and 6A isolates, from nasopharyngeal swabs of Fijian children enrolled in a recent vaccine trial. The results suggest Fijian serotype 6D has arisen independently from both serotypes 6A/C and 6B.
