Six new adenovirus serotypes are proposed. The prototypes were encountered among 65 strains of adenoviruses which were isolated from eastern Saudi Arabia in the period 1955 to 1957. Suitable prototype materials have been forwarded to the subcommittee on adenoviruses of the National Institutes of Health.
