Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), US/KY/14-18953 was isolated from a nasopharyngeal swab taken from a human in Kentucky, USA, in August 2014.

The complete genome of EV-D68, US/KY/14-18953 has been sequenced (GenBank: KM851231).

EV-D68 was first identified in California in 1962 from cases of bronchiolitis and pneumonia and was subsequently rarely reported in the United States until 2009. Clusters of severe respiratory disease were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention beginning in August 2014. EV-D68 was identified from a high percentage of initial cases, and severe EV-D68 infections became widespread across the United States in August and September. EV-D68, US/KY/14-18953 is representative of one of several co-circulating EV-D68 strains that have been identified in the 2014 severe respiratory disease outbreak.

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of cell lysate and supernatant from human rhabdomyosarcoma cells infected with EV-D68, US/KY/14-18953. Each vial of lot 63264124 contains approximately 0.5 mL of cell lysate and supernatant from human rhabdomyosarcoma cells infected with EV-D68, US/KY/14-18953.
