Princestown TRVL 112499 1978
The strain was isolated in 1971 from the blood of a 15 year old boy from Princestown, Trinidad, West Indies, and described as anew serovar named princestown, ref. strain TRVL 112499, in the Pyrogenes group (Green et al., 1978). As its serovar status was not yet confirmed by a RL, it is marked (+) in the Revised List of 1988. It was subsequently confirmed by a RL, and accepted at the TSC meeting in Osaka, 1990. Therefore it is included unconditionally in the attached updated list of serovars.
+ Provisional status; serovars validly described but not yet confirmed by serological typing results of a Reference (Ref.) Laboratory (Lab.) even as the original description was based on the typing results of a Ref. Lab.
