Pertactin-Negative and Filamentous Hemagglutinin-Negative Bordetella pertussis, Australia, 2013-2017.

Abstract

During the 2008-2012 pertussis epidemic in Australia, pertactin (Prn)-negative Bordetella pertussis emerged. We analyzed 78 isolates from the 2013-2017 epidemic and documented continued expansion of Prn-negative ptxP3 B. pertussis strains. We also detected a filamentous hemagglutinin-negative and Prn-negative B. pertussis isolate.
