U.S. researchers analyzed 12 Bordetella pertussis isolates collected from children hospitalized in Philadelphia and found that 11 of them tested negative for pertactin. Another study showed that children who received diphtheria-tetanus-whole-cell pertussis priming had lower incidence of pertussis than other children. Both studies were published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
