BMC Medicine will soon be launching a new article collection guest edited by Prof Naveed Sattar and Prof John Petrie, focused on the latest breakthroughs in treatment of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. We are seeking submissions of original research articles (including systematic reviews and meta-analyses) that provide important insights into pathogenesis, genetic risk factors, ethnicity, risk factor multipliers, management of the disease in complex patients, pharmacotherapy and new data from ongoing trials.
Here, Albert Jan van Hoek and Elizabeth Miller, co-authors of an article published in BMC Medicine, tell us more about their team's "back to the future" journey to understand causes of the recent resurgence in whooping cough (pertussis) and how their findings may help us deal with it in the future.
