Measles Genotype B3

  • November 9, 2005, a 17-year-old man who arrived at the airport in Newark, New Jersey, United States, had symptoms consistent with measles. Genotype B3 (subgroup B3.1) was identified from virus samples from this patient.
  • November 2005, a single case of measles was reported in the Netherlands. This patient had visited New York City, returned to the Netherlands on November 15, noted a rash on November 23, and was hospitalized with pneumonia and fever on November 24.
  • December 2005 genotype B3 was identified from patients who had had measles in Texas, Canada, and Mexico.


A) Dendrogram showing the relationships among the measles reference strains representing the 23 known measles genotypes (B3 has 2 reference strains).

Clade B (circled) is expanded in panel B. B) Midpoint-rooted maximum parsimony tree of nucleoprotein genes (450 nt) of measles viruses from patients in the United States, Mexico, the Netherlands, Canada, and Kenya during 2005 and 2006. The unrooted tree includes sequences from Nigeria in 2005, Germany in 2006, Côte d'Ivoire in 2004, and Benin in 2005 (sequences in bold, this study) as well as selected B3 sequences available from GenBank for comparison. GenBank accession numbers are shown in parentheses. The identical sequences from the "Kenya Outbreak Group" are represented by GenBank accession number DQ888751, MVi/New Jersey.USA/45.05. The GenBank numbers for the sequence from Benin (BEN) and the 3 sequences from Côte d'Ivoire (CIV) are EF031461, EF031458, EF031459, and EF031460. *Collected from the Dagoretti area of Nairobi; the other Nairobi sequences were from cases in the Eastleigh area.
