Statistical Physics Of Vaccination
Historically, infectious diseases caused considerable damage to human societies, and they continue to do so today. To help reduce their impact, mathematical models of disease transmission have been studied to help understand ...
An Antibiotic Protocol To Minimize Emergence Of Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis
A within-host model of the spread of tuberculosis is proposed here where the emergence of drug resistance and bacterial dormancy are simultaneously combined. We consider both sensitive and resistant strains of tuberculosis ...
Coevolution Of Risk Perception, Sexual Behaviour, And Hiv Transmission In An Agent-Based Model
Risk perception shapes individual behaviour, and is in turn shaped by the consequences of that behaviour. Here we explore this dynamics in the context of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) spread. We construct a simplified ...
The Impact Of Aggregating Serogroups In Dynamic Models Of Neisseria Meningitidis Transmission
(BioMed Central, 2015-07-30)
Background: Neisseria meningitidis (Nm) is a pathogen of multiple serogroups that is highly prevalent in many populations. Serogroups associated with invasive meningococcal disease (IMD) in Canada, for example, include A, ...
