INTRODUCTION It is increasingly difficult to differentiate measles viruses (MeVs) relating to certain outbreaks on the basis of the nucleoprotein (N) gene sequence only, as the diversity of circulating MeV strains has decreased. We studied genomic regions that could provide better molecular discrimination between epidemiologically linked and unlinked MeV variants identified in Sweden during 2013-2014. METHODS The hemagglutinin (H) gene and hypervariable region between the fusion and matrix… CONTINUE READING
