Structure and strains
Bordetella pertussis is a Gram-negative, aerobic, pathogenic, encapsulated coccobacillus of the genus Bordetella, and the causative agent of pertussis or whooping cough. Like B. bronchiseptica, B. pertussis can express a flagellum-like structure, even if it has been historically categorized as a nonmotile bacteria.[1] Its virulence factors include pertussis toxin, adenylate cyclase toxin, filamentous hemagglutinin, pertactin, fimbria, and tracheal cytotoxin.
Bordetella pertussis and Bordetella parapertussis are pathogens responsible for whooping cough, a worldwide spread infectious disease that is transmitted from person to person by droplet infection. Often young children up to four years old are affected. The mortality in infected infants is particularly high. Although young people and adults usually do not get seriously ill, they may act as a source of infection for non-protected and at risk patients such as infants and old people. Colonization of the respiratory tract and establishment of infection are facilitated by the synergistic action of several virulence factors.

Progression of a typical whooping cough can be divided into three stages. After an incubation period of one to two weeks symptoms begin with the catarrhal phase, usually accompanied by a cough, rhinitis and conjunctivitis. Subsequently, the convulsive phase follows characterized by paroxysmal cough attacks combined with vomiting of viscid mucus, laryngospasm and bronchospasm, leading to cyanosis in the child. After four to six weeks attacks diminish and slowly subside in the decrementi phase.
Detection and diagnosis
The ELISA technique is the most commonly chosen method for B. pertussis and B. parapertussis specific antibody determination in serodiagnosis and complements direct antigen detection. In over 90% of cases the IgG and IgA antibody responses are directed against the immunogens PT and FHA. Therefore, the SERION ELISA classic Bordetella pertussis IgG and IgA tests are based on antigen mixtures of PT and FHA. For the detection of IgM antibodies cellular bound lipopolysaccharid has outstanding diagnostic properties. Consequently, a whole-cell antigen preparation of B. pertussis is used in the SERION ELISA classic Bordetella pertussis IgM.
