Despite high population immunity, pertussis remains one of the leading causes of vaccine-preventable deaths worldwide. The aim of this study was to determine the seroprevalence of IgG antibodies to pertussis toxin (PT) and diphtheria among the adult male population leaving or entering China.

Low tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine coverage among healthcare workers in a quaternary university hospital in São Paulo, Brazil: need for continuous surveillance and implementation of active strategies.
Vaccination with tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) has been recommended for healthcare workers (HCWs) by Brazilian Ministry of Health since November 2014.
Vaccinating pregnant women with influenza vaccine and tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid, and acellular pertussis vaccine (Tdap) can reduce influenza and pertussis risk for themselves and their...
Oregon continues to face epidemics of pertussis, and infants younger than 2 months of age have the highest incidence and rates of hospitalization and complications. We describe the medical course and ...
As the current recommendation of administering Tdap (tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis) to all pregnant women has not been widely implemented in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), we aimed to ascert...
Quantifying IgG antibodies to pertussis toxin (PT) is the most specific and sensitive method to serodiagnose a Bordetella pertussis infection. Since PT is a component of acellular pertussis vaccines, ...
This study evaluates the seroprevalence of Bordetella pertussis antibodies and anti-pertussis antibodies response after its single dose of reduced-antigen, combined diphtheria, tetanus, an...
Pertussis, diphtheria and tetanus are seriously infectious diseases in children. Since using of the vaccine targeted the three components, it greatly reduced incidence of the three kinds o...

As per request by the Heath Authorities, the present clinical study will assess the immunogenicity and safety of sanofi pasteur's DTacP-IPV// PRP~T combined vaccine (PENTAXIM™) as a thre...
This study is designed to assess the immunogenicity and safety of DTaP vaccine (BK1301) as a booster dose in adolescents. The purposes of this study are as follows: - To confirm...
A suspension of killed Bordetella pertussis organisms, used for immunization against pertussis (WHOOPING COUGH). It is generally used in a mixture with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids (DTP). There is an acellular pertussis vaccine prepared from the purified antigenic components of Bordetella pertussis, which causes fewer adverse reactions than whole-cell vaccine and, like the whole-cell vaccine, is generally used in a mixture with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
The formaldehyde-inactivated toxin of Corynebacterium diphtheriae. It is generally used in mixtures with TETANUS TOXOID and PERTUSSIS VACCINE; (DTP); or with tetanus toxoid alone (DT for pediatric use and Td, which contains 5- to 10-fold less diphtheria toxoid, for other use). Diphtheria toxoid is used for the prevention of diphtheria; DIPHTHERIA ANTITOXIN is for treatment.
A combined vaccine used to prevent infection with diphtheria and tetanus toxoid. This is used in place of DTP vaccine (DIPHTHERIA-TETANUS-PERTUSSIS VACCINE) when PERTUSSIS VACCINE is contraindicated.
Combined vaccines consisting of DIPHTHERIA TOXOID; TETANUS TOXOID; and an acellular form of PERTUSSIS VACCINE. At least five different purified antigens of B. pertussis have been used in various combinations in these vaccines.
A vaccine consisting of DIPHTHERIA TOXOID; TETANUS TOXOID; and whole-cell PERTUSSIS VACCINE. The vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough.
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
