Summary

P-886, a strain of Sindbis virus, was isolated from a pool of 67 Culex bitaeniorhynchus mosquitoes in Luson, Philippine Islands. Hemagglutination-inhibition, complement-fixation, and neutralization tests showed immunological differences between the Philippine and Egyptian strains of the virus.
