The object of this investigation was to define the nature of the immune responses of mice that had been given a sublethal pulmonary infection with Bordetella pertussis - an infection which shares many features with whooping cough in man. Both serum antibodies and local, secretory antibodies were studied the latter being sampled as tracheobronchial washings (TBW). A particular focus of interest was in those responses that were directed against biologically active components of B. pertussis and in those responses involved in passive protective activity against intracerebral and sublethal intranasal challenge with live B. pertussis.
