Four strains of rats were each infected intrabronchially with approximately 10(8) CFU of Bordetella pertussis 18-323 encased in fine agarose beads. After 8 days, Sprague-Dawley rats developed the highest incidence of coughing paroxysms, as monitored with voice-activated tape recorders; Brown Norway, Lewis, and Hooded Lister rats coughed significantly less frequently.
