    INFECTIOUS DISEASE

    The quality of treatment starts with diagnosis.

  • Pertussis, commonly called whooping cough, is a highly contagious disease of the respiratory system caused by small gram negative bacteria; Bordetella pertussis and Bordetella parapertussis. Clinically, it presents with a prolonged cough and patients with classic disease often have episodes of violent cough that may be followed by an inspiratory whoop and vomiting. In severe cases, seen most commonly in young infants, these symptoms can lead to hypoxia, permanent brain damage, or death. In older children and adults, particularly those who have been vaccinated or previously had the disease, the illness can be milder and present as a prolonged cough.

    Since the late 1990s, there has been a marked increase in the number of reported pertussis cases in developed countries with high vaccination rates. In 2012, 48,227 cases were reported in the United States, the highest number of reported cases since 1955.1 The World Health Organization estimates that there are 50 million whooping cough cases worldwide each year, resulting in 350,000 deaths.2,3 Pertussis can be detected among all age groups (e.g., neonates, children, adolescents and adults). A great majority of these cases are caused by Bordetella pertussis; however, 2-20% of cases are caused by Bordetella parapertussis, which can present clinically as a milder pertussis-like disease.4

    Direct PCR testing with our Simplexa® Bordetella Direct assay provides a rapid and reliable differential detection and diagnosis of B. pertussis and B. parapertussis.
