Classification, by agglutinogens, of 634 isolates of Bordetella pertussis collected from 1971 to 1968 in Great Britain demonstrated that a change from a predominantly 1,2,0,4 serotype (75% of those examined during 1941-4) to a predominantly 1,0,3,0 serotype (73% of those examined during 1966-8) occurred sometime after 1953. Furthermore, evidence from the(More)
When mice were injected intracerebrally with doses of Bordetella pertussis vaccine greater than 5 ImD 50 and challenged intracerebrally 14 days later with virulent B. pertussis there was an immediate reduction in the numbers of organisms. An analysis of this in vivo bactericidal effect has shown that large doses of an unrelated vaccine, Salmonella typhosa,(More)
A schedule for the routine serotyping of strains of Bordetella pertussis based on agglutinin production in mice to the K-antigens has been worked out. Mice have been found as satisfactory as rabbits but far more economical for the production of the very small volumes of serum which are required. Agglutinin production, used in conjunction with direct(More)
Strains of Bordetella pertussis in which all the organisms contain agglutinogens 1 and 3 or 1,2 and 4 are easy to identify as serotypes 1,0,3,0 and 1,2,0,4 respectively; and similarly, stable strains of serotype 1,0,3,4 are occasionally found. During repeated subcultures, passage in vivo, and lyophilization and preservation for many years, these serotypes(More)
