Verification of Bordetella pertussis and Bordetella holmesii withreal-time PCR
2017 (engelsk)Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
Abstract [en]

Bordetella pertussis causes whooping cough, which is a very dangerous disease especially for children. A correct diagnose is very important. Bordetella pertussis usually misidentifies with Bordetella holmesii by routine polymerase chain reaction.The aim of the study is to evaluate a target sequence that can verify a Bordetella pertussis infection and distinguish it from other Bordetella species, in specific Bordetella holmesii.The target sequences' sensitivities were tested on the control bacterial strains. Sixty-five clinical samples were analyzed with real-time PCR.The study concludes that both IS481 and ptxA target sequences are highly specific to detect B. pertussis, while both ho_IS1001 and IS481 are specific to detect B. holmesii. Pa_IS1001 is specific to detect B. parapertussis. Culturing is less sensitive to detect Bordetella infection than real-time PCR.
