Caption: Whooping cough research. Researcher preparing a culture of Bordetella pertussis bacteria, the cause of whooping cough. Whooping cough, or pertussis, is an infectious disease of the respiratory tract that causes fits of coughing that end in loud inspiratory whoops. It is potentially fatal in newborn and premature babies. Antibiotic drugs have a limited effect once the coughing begins. An effective vaccine is available. Photographed at the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, USA.
