Phytochemicals and Pertussis

Pertussis (whooping cough) is a disease of uncontrollable coughing as a result of infection caused by bacteria Bordetella pertussis

Types of food to prevent and treat Pertussis
1. Green tea and black tea
In the study to evaluate the efficacy of anti bactericidal activity of tea and catechins against Bordetella pertussis, indicated that pu-erh tea killed the bacteria in a moderate way. (-) Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) and theaflavin digallate (TF3) showed also marked bactericidal activity. Green tea and black tea also effectively blocked the adhesion of B. pertussis to HeLa and CHO cells, whereas ECGg and TF3 could not. EGCg and TF3 markedly inactivated leuco-lymphocytosis promoting activity of pertussis toxin. Black tea showed slight but significant inactivation of the activity, whereas green tea showed no inactivation(1).
