Abstract The 60-year high Bordetella pertussis ( B. pertussis ) infection rate in the world suggests the urgent need for new anti-pertussis vaccines. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of B. pertussis is an attractive antigen for vaccine development. With the presence of multiple rare sugars and unusual glycosyl linkages, B. pertussis LPS is a highly challenging synthetic target. In this work, aided by molecular dynamics simulation and modeling, the pertussis LPS like pentasaccharide was chemically synthesized for the first time. The pentasaccharide was conjugated with a powerful carrier, bacteriophage Qβ as a vaccine ...

BOSTON (CBS) — Routine childhood vaccines are often required for entry into school, but does making vaccines mandatory actually improve immunization rates? And what if families had to pay a penalty for failing to vaccinate? A new study in the journal Pediatrics aimed to answer these questions. Researchers looked at 29 European countries and found those that legally mandate vaccinations for measles and pertussis or whooping cough, for example, had higher vaccination rates than countries that did not mandate them. In countries with mandatory vaccination that did not allow families to opt-out for religious or other non-...

The rise of vaccine-preventable illnesses, such as measles and hepatitis, in the United States and around the globe has been alarming in recent years. For women — especially those hoping to become pregnant, as well as women who are pregnant or have recently had a baby — vaccines can be a worrisome topic. There are many misconceptions about vaccine safety in and around pregnancy that can lead to confusion and unnecessary fear of a lifesaving medical tool. As a practicing ob/gyn, I often discuss vaccines with my patients and help them sort out fears versus facts. Which vaccines should you consider before concepti...

(Natural News) A new peer-reviewed scientific paper published in the journal Tropical Diseases, Travel Medicine and Vaccines has found that the DTaP vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough) is causing children who receive it to become more prone to contracting whooping cough later on in life. According to the study, children who receive...

The primary aim was to determine the seroprevalence of anti-pertussis toxin antibodies (anti-PT IgG) among Thai pregnant women. The secondary aims were to evaluate antibodies response after tetanus toxoid, reduced diphtheria toxoid, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccination between seronegative and seropositive mothers and to compare the different antibody titers at delivery among seropositive mothers who received Tdap to those who received tetanus-diphtheria vaccine (Td).

(Natural News) Students attending St. Theresa Catholic School in Houston, Texas, were given an extended Christmas break thanks to an unexpected whooping cough outbreak that reportedly shut the school down early. And wouldn’t you know it, but St. Theresa has a 100 percent vaccination rate – meaning this whooping cough outbreak occurred among fully vaccinated...

(Natural News) A Texas school that touts a “100% vaccination rate” has been forced to close its doors and send students home after a whooping cough outbreak swept through the school, infecting students who were already vaccinated. The incident proves yet again that vaccines don’t work as advertised, and that infectious disease outbreaks very often...
