What disease can bordetella pertussis cause?

Whooping cough: Whooping cough, formally called pertussis, is a respiratory disease that in its classic form in small children can produce paroxysms of cough strong enough to fracture a rib and long enough to cause lack of oxygen in the body. It is especially harmful in infants less than 12 months old who are not yet immunized. Because of waning immunity from vaccine, boosters are now recommended in adults.

How can bordetella pertussis (whooping cough) reproduce?

How can bordetella pertussis (whooping cough) reproduce?

Sugar/water/mucous: The human respiratory system provides a luxurious collection of sugar, protein & water in the form of airway mucous. This provides ample nutrition for whooping cough & a multitude of other germs.

How does bordetella pertussis affect peptide hormone response?

How does bordetella pertussis affect peptide hormone response?

Enhance production: By affecting some inhibitory pathways, pertussis toxins can increase the production of parathyroid hormone from PTH and other hormones from fsh.

How does whooping cough - bordetella pertussis - enter your body and what does it do?

How does whooping cough - bordetella pertussis - enter your body and what does it do?

Persistent cough: It is an airborne disease that you acquire from someone else and it is highly contageous. It can result with a persistent cough that may last weeks, even after treatment with antibiotics. The cough is incapacitating.

Whooping cough: This bacteria causes whooping cough and it is very contagious. It is easy to contract from a person who is infected and is coughing and sneezing.

Why do we use two different strains of bordetella pertussis in the production of its vaccine?

Why do we use two different strains of bordetella pertussis in the production of its vaccine?

Not sure that is tru: The current vaccine (acellular) is produced by purifying a number of toxins from b. Pertussis and detoxifying them.

Can you have cvid if your IgG is 1320mg/dl? Iga is slightly low, Igm is 111.

Can you have cvid if your IgG is 1320mg/dl? Iga is slightly low, Igm is 111.

Yes: While traditionally we have thought of CVID as hypogammaglobulinemia (low IgG) it is actually possible to have normal IgG but poor response to immune challenges (like vaccination). This should be tested by an immunologist. Usually they will look at tetanus, diphtheria, and streptococcus pneumoniae titers, then repeat vaccine if low and recheck in 6-8 weeks. This will help to make diagnosis.

64M, iga 161 (82-453) igg 669 (751-1560 igm 29 (43-279) no symptoms, do nothing, do you agree?

64M, iga 161 (82-453) igg 669 (751-1560 igm 29 (43-279) no symptoms, do nothing, do you agree?

Agree: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your laboratory results per se are not a cause for concern and do not warrant any action. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

2 y.o has reoccuring infections and is always ill, she's failure to thrive. Labs show IgM 40mg/dl, IgA is 372mg/dl & igG is, 962mg/dl. Interpretations?

2 y.o has reoccuring infections and is always ill, she's failure to thrive. Labs show IgM 40mg/dl, IgA is 372mg/dl & igG is, 962mg/dl. Interpretations?

Results: IgM is normal: IgA is elevated and IgG is borderline elevated. Consistent with history of chronic infections. Follow-up with physician who ordered test for clinical correlation.

I have Hashimoto's also low Igg and Iga. This seems odd, as they are usually raised with auto-immune is is this indicative of another health problem?

I have Hashimoto's also low Igg and Iga. This seems odd, as they are usually raised with auto-immune is is this indicative of another health problem?

Depends: You can have low IgG and IgA which may increase your risk in contracting respiratory tract infections. You can have Hashimoto's too since only a small portion of your IgG may be targeted against the thyroid. Your question is valid.

My daughter age 3y10m her weight is 8 kg and her test result of anti transglutaminase-IgA = 2.45 U/ml and anti transglutaminase-IgG =31.79 U/ml is she normal or not??

My daughter age 3y10m her weight is 8 kg and her test result of anti transglutaminase-IgA = 2.45 U/ml and anti transglutaminase-IgG =31.79 U/ml is she normal or not??

Should see your doc.: The tTG-IgA is in normal range, but IgG is elevated. This likely represents POSITIVE result SUGGESTING Celiac disease. However, a biopsy is needed to confirm the diagnosis. Because IgA is normal while IgG is high, this suggests possible IgA deficiency, which is more common in people with Celiac Disease. Either way, you should talk to your doc about the results as she may need further tests.

My one year old daughters IgA and IgG levels are low, is this serious?

My one year old daughters IgA and IgG levels are low, is this serious?

See immunologist: If her igg levels are low for age, then she should see an immunologist. (children at different ages have different expected igg levels). Sometimes a low igg level in a 1 year old will self-resolve (hypogammaglobulinemia of infancy), and sometimes it can be an early presenation of other immune issues (like common variable immunodeficiency).

My son has low igg, iga, mch, and mcv. What could this mean?

My son has low igg, iga, mch, and mcv. What could this mean?

Need further check.: Most individuals lacking one or more igg subclasses are asymptomatic.Patients with symptomatic igg subclass deficiency most commonly present with recurrent sinopulmonary infections. The infections vary in frequency and severity, and include otitis, sinusitis, and pneumonia that are usually due to common respiratory bacterial pathogens. More serious infections that can occur

What's the difference between igG, igA, igD, igE, igM?

What's the difference between igG, igA, igD, igE, igM?

See below: The short answer is that these are all immunoglobulins with different functions in your body. There's not enough space here to go into detail so here's a link with a lot of information: http://pathmicro. Med. Sc.edu/mayer/igstruct2000.htm

Hi. I have IgA a 7 and IgG a 24. The lab range was negative 0-20. Do this mean I have Crohn's for sure?

Hi. I have IgA a 7 and IgG a 24. The lab range was negative 0-20. Do this mean I have Crohn's for sure?

No: The diagnosis of Crohn's is based on other findings - ask your gastroenterologist. This depends on the evaluation of you intestine

What do my celiac disease tissue transglutaminase iga/igg results mean?

What do my celiac disease tissue transglutaminase iga/igg results mean?

Anti-transglutaminas: Antibodies that bind to transglutaminase could indicate the presence of celiac disease. This is a sugggestive test only. Negative testing does not definitively rule-out celiac dz and positive testing does not confirm the diagnosis. An intestinal biopsy would be the most helpful test.

What specific immunoglobulins are found in bovine colostrum? Iga, igg, igm...Etc.?

What specific immunoglobulins are found in bovine colostrum? Iga, igg, igm...Etc.?

Bovine Colostrum: Bovine colostrum from pasture-fed cows contains immunoglobulins specific to many human pathogens, including escherichia coli, cryptosporidium parvum, shigella flexneri, salmonella, staphylococcus, [28] and rotavirus (which causes diarrhea in infants). Likely igm, igg, and IgA although I am not specific about this.
