It is known that the twin prime conjecture is a special case of the $k$-tuple conjecture. See if you want the article with title k-Tuple Conjecture from the encyclopedia Wolfram MathWorld.

On the other hand I know* the Theorem 2 of [1], due to Suzuki, concerning a formulation of the twin prime problem.

Question. Is it possible/feasible to get an alternative formulation, in the spirit of Suzuki's Theorem 2, for different prime constellations/k-tuples? Many thanks.

If the statement is in the literature refer the bibliography, and I try to read it from the literature.
