Bordetella pertussis – quality PCR

124 Bordetella pertussis – quality PCR

The test consists in detecting DNA Bordetella pertussis in a swab of nasopharyngeal cavity. Pertussis is currently a seldom disease due to the application of protective vaccination. The tests indicated, however, that post-vaccination immunity against pertussis vanishes after approximately 12 years. Therefore, there are more and more pertussis cases among school children and youth now. Pertussis also affects adult people, who have long lost their post-vaccination immunity, but the disease is much more benign with them than with children or adopts a non-typical form of bronchitis. In the course of pertussis, a paroxysmal cough may come up, which leads to dyspnoea. Going over through pertussis leaves human with full immunity to this disease.
