Abstract

In this study, a suite of single antigen DNA vaccines, combination DNA vaccines and dual modality vaccines, were developed and evaluated for their potential to induce humoral and cell-mediated immune responses, and protective efficacy against Bordetella pertussis, the aetiological agent of whooping cough, using the mouse respiratory challenge model.
