Antibody responses to whole-cell pertussis vaccine (wP), aceullar pertussis vaccine (aP), and whole-cell Bordetella holmesii vaccine (wH). A) Specific Ig titers of serum antibodies for B. pertussis (B.p.), B. parapertussis (B.p.p.), or B. holmesii (B.h.) for wH-, wP- or aP- vaccinated mice. Error bars indicate SE. *p<0.01. B) Western blots of B. pertussis, B. parapertussis, and B. holmesii lysates probed with naive serum or wH-, wP-, or aP-induced serum.
