COMMENTS

Some of the terms of this sequence are primes that are separated from both their predecessor and successor primes by 12, e.g., 211, 1511, 4409, 4691, 7841, 9871, 11299, 11411, 11731. See A053072.  Harvey P. Dale, Apr 07 2013
Conjecture: The sequence is infinite and for every n, a(n+1) < a(n)^(1+1/n). Namely a(n)^(1/n) is a strictly decreasing function of n (See comment lines of the sequence A248855).  Jahangeer Kholdi and Farideh Firoozbakht, Nov 29 2014
Aside from 2 and 3, all primes are congruent to 1, 5, 7, 11 mod 12. Thus the least significant duodecimal digit of any term in this sequence is 1, 5, 7 or B.  Alonso del Arte, Aug 19 2017

EXAMPLE

199 is a term as the next prime is 199 + 12 = 211.
211 is also a term since the next prime is 211 + 12 = 223.
But 223 is not a term since the next prime is 227, and 223 + 12 = 235 = 5 * 47.
