Results of testing of Bordatella pertussis and B. holmesii vaccines and protection against B. holmesii in mice. A) Mice vaccinated with whole-cell pertussis vaccine (wP) versus naive mice; B) mice vaccinated with aceullar pertussis vaccine (aP) versus adjuvant (adj) only vaccinated; C) mice vaccinated with whole-cell B. holmesii vaccine (wH) versus naive mice. All mice were challenged with B. pertussis (B.p.), B. parapertussis (B.p.p.) or B. holmesii (B.h.), and euthanized on day 3 postinoculati
