Infectious Diseases of Humans: Dynamics and Control
TLDR
This book discusses the biology of host-microparasite associations, dynamics of acquired immunity heterogeneity within the human community indirectly transmitted helminths, and the ecology and genetics of hosts and parasites.
The Population Dynamics of Microparasites and Their Invertebrate Hosts
TLDR
Three simple models embodying the essentials of the dynamical interaction between invertebrate hosts and their directly transmitted microparasites suggest that the baculovirus and microsporidian infections of many temperate forest insects will tend to produce stable cycles in host abundance and in prevalence of infection, with periods in the range 5-12 years.
Transmission Dynamics of the Etiological Agent of SARS in Hong Kong: Impact of Public Health Interventions
TLDR
Transmission rates fell during the SARS epidemic, primarily as a result of reductions in population contact rates and improved hospital infection control, but also because of more rapid hospital attendance by symptomatic individuals.
Population Biology of Infectious Diseases
TLDR
When you read more every page of this population biology of infectious diseases, what you will obtain is something great.
Population biology of infectious diseases: Part I
If the host population is taken to be a dynamic variable (rather than constant, as conventionally assumed), a wider understanding of the population biology of infectious diseases emerges. In this
REGULATION AND STABILITY OF HOST-PARASITE POPULATION INTERACTIONS
SUMMARY (1) Three categories of biological processes are shown to have a destabilizing influence on the dynamical behaviour of model host-parasite associations: parasite induced reduction in host
Factors that make an infectious disease outbreak controllable.
TLDR
It is concluded that severe acute respiratory syndrome and smallpox are easier to control using these simple public health measures and should be a priority during an outbreak of a novel infectious agent.
