A collaborative report: rhinoviruses--extension of the numbering system from 89 to 100.


To define the number of rhinovirus serotypes, cross neutralization tests and characterization studies were completed on 25 candidate prototype rhinoviruses submitted to a third phase of a collaborative program. Based on the results, 11 distinct prototype strains were designated and the numbering system was extended to include 100 rhinoviruses. In addition, recent evidence indicates that over 90% of rhinoviruses isolated in three areas of the country could be typed with antisera for rhinovirus types 1-89.
