The Persistence of Pertussis and the Prognostic Value of Bordetella Detection

Sponsored by: DiaSorin
Speaker

Abstract

Whooping cough caused by Bordetella infection has resurged in recent years.  Dr. Karissa Culbreath will discuss the clinical presentation of Bordetella infection and its public health impact.  The prognostic value of B. pertussis and B. parapertussis detection for Bordetella diagnosis will be reexamined.

Learning Objectives: 

1. Humans are the only host of B. pertussis
2. Multicopy genes help to support diagnostic sensitivity
3. Diasorin Molecular B. pertussis/B. parapertussis reagents can be used to detect B. pertussis and parapertussis with or without extraction
