Figure 1. Concurrent Swedish Pertussis and Celiac Disease Epidemics, 1986-2000. The cessation of BP immunization in Sweden in 1979 preceded a rise in BP in the 1980s, persisting until acellular BP vaccination trials in 1993-1994 and broad implementation of vaccination in 1996 (red line) [7]. The incidence of CD in Swedish children < 2 years of age, based on data from Olsson et al. (dashed blue line) [9], closely tracks BP incidence in Sweden during this period.
