Molecular and phenotypic characterization of Vibrio navarrensis isolates associated with human illness.
We characterized 18 Vibrio isolates, including 15 recovered from human clinical specimens and found that they clustered with two previously characterized V. navarrensis isolates in a phylogenetic analysis. Four of the 18 strains may represent a new Vibrio species, distinct from V. navarrensis. The potential role of V. navarrensis in human disease needs further investigation.
