Because diphtheria and whooping cough are most prevalent and serious in the first years of life, it seemed logical that immunization against the two diseases should be attempted at the same time by the injection of mixtures of diphtheria toxoid and potent pertussis vaccine. When this investigation was begun in 1938 only Bordet1 had published a brief report on the use of a mixture; but he gave no data on immunity tests for either disease nor did he report clinical evidence of protection.

A satisfactory mixture of these antigens when injected subcutaneously should not be
