Which Strategy for Pertussis Vaccination Today?
TLDR
In order to control pertussis incidence, each country should continue to determine the best national vaccination program established in very close relation to the past and present epidemiological situation and available healthcare resources.
Pertussis vaccines: past, present and future in Australia.
TLDR
Issues considered in the evaluation of the cost-effectiveness of the acellular pertussis vaccine were discussed, including comparative efficacy, adverse events and compliance, and the question of community as well as individual benefit from the use of the vaccine.
Human Immune Responses to Pertussis Vaccines.
TLDR
This chapter will discuss the responses of the immune system to whole-cell pertussis vaccines and aPVs, with the aim to enlighten critical points needing further efforts to reach a good level of protection in vaccinated individuals.
The efficacy of whole cell pertussis immunisation: collected data on a vaccine produced in France.
The place of whole cell pertussis vaccines in paediatric immunisation schedules is under re-evaluation by public health authorities in many countries, with the expectation that the newly licensed
The efficacy of whole cell pertussis immunisation
Abstract The place of whole cell pertussis vaccines in paediatric immunisation schedules is under re-evaluation by public health authorities in many countries, with the expectation that the newly
Pertussis immunisation and control in England and Wales, 1957 to 2012: a historical review.
This review summarises the epidemiology and control of pertussis in England and Wales since the introduction of routine immunisation and considers the implications for future control. Routine infant
The resurgence of mumps and pertussis
TLDR
Possible causes of this resurgence of mumps and pertussis will be discussed, such as the occurrence of adapted microbes, failure to vaccinate and primary and secondary vaccine failure.
Issues to be considered for the introduction of new vaccines into national vaccination programmes
TLDR
This chapter reviews some of the issues to be considered before appropriately licensed, new vaccines may be introduced into the national immunization programmes (NIPs).
Controlling pertussis: how can we do it? A focus on immunization
TLDR
This review discusses the major challenges for controlling pertussis, and what the best strategies are to overcome these challenges, focusing on immunization against pertussi in Europe, but with recommendations that are relevant worldwide.
Acellular pertussis vaccines in Japan: past, present and future
TLDR
Japan now has the most experience worldwide with acellular pertussis vaccines, being the first country to have approved their use, and should be valuable to other countries that are considering the development and use of such vaccines.

Efficacy of whole-cell pertussis vaccine in preschool children in the United States.
TLDR
Direct side-by-side efficacy studies of whole-cell vaccine and the recently licensed acellular vaccine will be necessary to assure that comparable protection is afforded by the new vaccines if they are to be used for immunization of infants.

TLDR
To effectively control pertussis in the world, all countries should use available pertussi vaccines in immunization programmes for children and all efforts should be directed to increase or maintain high immunization coverage with DPT immunization at the level of at least 90% in all districts.
Epidemiology of pertussis in a developed country with low vaccination coverage: the Italian experience.
TLDR
Trends and characteristics of Italian children with pertussis are examined and the low vaccine coverage appears to be caused by the ambivalence of the Italian pediatric community about the vaccine rather than parental concerns about vaccine safety.

TLDR
Though the recent decrease of the vaccine acceptance rate was due to the public reaction to rather imbalaanced arguments concerning the vaccine risk, it is also true that a more potent and less toxic component vaccine is urgently needed at this moment.
A controlled trial of two acellular vaccines and one whole-cell vaccine against pertussis. Progetto Pertosse Working Group.
TLDR
The two acellular DTP vaccines studied were safe, immunogenic, and efficacious against pertussis, whereas the efficacy of the whole-cell DTP vaccine was unexpectedly low.
DT vaccine in place of DTP vaccine for children
TLDR
The data indicate that the rate of DT administration is perhaps four to five times higher than it should be, and that there are concentrations of high rates ofDT administration within specific municipalities, which results in geographically clustered populations of children who have inadequate pertussis protection.

TLDR
Immunization against pertussis was introduced compulsorily in 1953 with a combined diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine and since that time the method of preparation, quality and quantity of the vaccine as well as its immunization schedule underwent several important modifications.
The epidemiology of pertussis in the Republic of Ireland.
TLDR
If a further decline in the incidence of the disease is to be achieved, parents have to be persuaded of the benefits of pertussis vaccination, and changes in the vaccination schedule could have a major impact on the incidence.
