Alexi HS 616 1963
The strain was isolated from a patient in Puerto Rico in 1951 and described, after comparison with serovars Pyrogenes and Zanoni, as a new serovar named alexi, with ref. strain HS 616 (Alexander et al., 1963). The new serovar first appears in the list of 1965
(WHO, 1965). The strain was submitted to factor analysis by Kmety (1967), who confirmed its status. Later it was suggested that the serovar should be placed in the subgroup Pyrogenes (Dikken & Kmety, 1978).
