Onference on the pathogenesis and prevention of pneumonia in children in developing regions. Bellagio (ITA), 1989-08-21.
Pertussis is a distinct clinical syndrome caused by Bordetella pertussis.
The disease has been well characterized and largely controlled in the industrialized countries.
Studies of pertussis in developing countries have been much more limited, in large part because of difficulty in culturing the organisms.
Conventional whole-cell vaccine is being widely used in developping countries but without clear epidemiologic measures of efficacy.
