We have developed a deterministic susceptible, exposed, infectious, resistant or removed (SEIR) model of dengue fever transmission that enables us to explore the behavior of an epidemic, and to experiment with vector control practices. [...] Key Method Populations of both host and vector are divided into compartments representing disease status (susceptible, exposed, infectious, and, for humans, resistant), and the flow between compartments is described by differential equations.Expand
A Model of the Transmission of Dengue Fever with Larval Competition and the Insecticide Application on Control of the Vector
Dengue fever is a viral disease endemic in many areas of the world. About two-thirds of the world's population live in areas infested with dengue vectors, mainly Aedes aegypti. Dengue causes aExpand
Impact of combined vector-control and vaccination strategies on transmission dynamics of dengue fever: a model-based analysis
This study shows that an imperfect vaccine can be a useful weapon in reducing disease spread within the community, although it will be most effective when promoted as one of several strategies for combating dengue fever transmission. Expand
Modelling the spread of dengue in Singapore
We have developed a simulation model that describes the spread of dengue fever in Singapore. The population of the host is divided into compartments representing disease status (susceptible, exposed,Expand
Climate Change, Population Immunity, and Hyperendemicity in the Transmission Threshold of Dengue
The threshold MPP was underestimated if population immunity was not considered and overestimated if hyperendemicity was not included in the simulations; in addition to temperature, these factors are particularly important when quantifying the thresholds for vector control in dengue-endemic areas.

Mathematical modeling of dengue epidemic: control methods and vaccination strategies
It is found that the dengue fever epidemic is only eradicated with the use of an immunizing vaccine because control measures, directed against its vector, are not enough to halt the disease spreading. Expand
Characterizing the likelihood of dengue emergence and detection in naïve populations
A stochastic, compartmental model to describe the heterogeneity of human viremia is constructed and it is found that the infectivity of the index case as well as the contact rate affected the probability of emergence, but that contact rate had the most significant effect. Expand
Optimal Control of Mitigation Strategies for Dengue Virus Transmission.
The cumulative number of infected humans is small when the vaccination rate is high or the waning rate is low for previously infected humans, and the corresponding optimal solutions for mitigation dengue virus transmission are derived by applying Pontryagin's Maximum Principle. Expand
Modeling the Dynamic Transmission of Dengue Fever: Investigating Disease Persistence
It is concluded that low infestation rates in a few neighborhoods ensure the persistence of d Dengue in large cities and suggested that better strategies should be implemented to obtain measures of house index values, in order to improve the dengue monitoring and control system. Expand
Models of the impact of dengue vaccines: a review of current research and potential approaches.
A key parameter of all approaches is the basic reproduction number, R(0), which can be used to determine the critical vaccination fraction to eliminate transmission, and several methods that have been used to estimate this quantity are reviewed. Expand
Sensitivity of Dengue Fever Transmission Model with respect to Parameters
This work studies the sensitivity of the dynamics of the dengue transmission model with respect to parameters with aim to identify the most important parameters in order to control d Dengue. Expand
