Rates of Pertussis Disease Among Persons Receiving Pentacel® or Other Pertussis Vaccines

2014-08-27 03:13:27 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this cohort study is to determine vaccine-specific rates of pertussis disease during the period of the study, among Wisconsin residents younger than 60 months of age (the Surveillance Population), and to descriptively compare the proportion of such persons vaccinated with Pentacel® vaccine who acquire pertussis disease to the proportion of such persons vaccinated with any other Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis (DTaP) vaccine who acquire pertussis disease.

Primary Objective:

To determine the rates and relative risk of pertussis disease among Surveillance Population members who have received Pentacel vaccine or another pertussis vaccine.


The study will be conducted by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, in collaboration with the Wisconsin Division of Public Health (WDPH).

Epidemiological and laboratory surveillance for pertussis disease among Wisconsin residents is routinely conducted by the WDPH. During the period of the study, de-identified data regarding all incident pertussis cases will be obtained from WDPH and vaccination coverage rates, by vaccine regimen, age group, and period of time, will be obtained from ongoing marketplace surveillance conducted on behalf of the Sponsor by a national sample-survey organization. Using these data, rates of pertussis disease will be determined.

No vaccine will be administered as part of this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

One of the virulence factors produced by BORDETELLA PERTUSSIS. It is a multimeric protein composed of five subunits S1 - S5. S1 contains mono ADPribose transferase activity.

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 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.

A vaccine consisting of DIPHTHERIA TOXOID; TETANUS TOXOID; and whole-cell PERTUSSIS VACCINE. The vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough.
