Spatiotemporal modelling of viral infection dynamics
A simple two-dimensional cellular automaton model of viral infections was developed and was validated against clinical immunological data for uncomplicated influenza A infections and shown to be accurate enough to adequately protect against emerging spatial structures such as localized populations of dead cells.
Probing the effects of the well-mixed assumption on viral infection dynamics.
Kinetics of Hepatitis B Virus Infection: A Cellular Automaton Model Study
The results of the simulations show biphasic nature of viral load decreases, as observed in the acute infection in real state, and confirm the importance of the hepatocyte target cells, the spatial localization, and the local interactions on the dynamics of HBV infection.
A coarse-grained cellular automaton model for hepatitis B viral infections
The simulation results show that the 2-D coarse-grained cellular automata model is powerful in simulating the process of HBV infection cell, and can be used to simulate the curative effects of different medication.

To simulate the human immunodeficiency virus infection process, a model was proposed based on cellular automata that looked the infection as spreading from the infectious cells to susceptible ones.
Stochastic modeling for dynamics of HIV-1 infection using cellular automata: A review
The studies of the dynamics of HIV-1 infection using CA in memory have been presented to recognize how CA have been developed for HIV- 1 dynamics, which issues have been studied already and which issues still are objectives in future studies.
A Simulation Framework to Investigate in vitro Viral Infection Dynamics
The spatial reproduction number in a cellular automaton model for vector-borne diseases applied to the transmission of Chagas disease
Using an extension of the so-called next-generation matrix, an expression is obtained that characterizes the spatial heterogeneity of the risk of emergence of an outbreak of Chagas disease.


Dynamics of HIV infection: a cellular automata approach.
It is found that the infected cells organize themselves into spatial structures, which are responsible for the decrease on the concentration of uninfected cells, leading to AIDS.
Spatiotemporal dynamics of HIV propagation.
A cellular automaton model of viral propagation based on the known biophysical properties of HIV is introduced, which includes the competition between viral lability and Brownian motion and finds that propagation is limited by viral stability at low cell density and by geometry at high cell density.
Mathematical model of antiviral immune response. III. Influenza A virus infection.
An approach to studying theoretically the regularities and the kinetic characteristics of influenza A virus (IAV) infection in man by developing a multiparameter mathematical model which allows direct quantitative references to the biological reality.
Modelling viral and immune system dynamics
The use of mathematical modelling to interpret experimental results has made a significant contribution to the understanding of human immunodeficiency virus 1 and other viruses, such as hepatitis B virus and hepatitis C virus, that cause chronic infection.
Stochastic stage-structured modeling of the adaptive immune system
A stochastic stage-structured approach that has many of the advantages of agent-based modeling but is much more efficient is used, which can provide insights into the effect infections have on the CTL repertoire and the response to subsequent infections.
Design and implementation of an immune system simulator
A model for simulating cognate recognition and response in the immune system.
Dynamics of HIV Infection
It is believed that infected cells produce virus for about 1 day before they die, and cells that are productively infected are relatively short-lived, and new cells need to be constantly infected to sustain the infection.
The Evolution of Emergent Organization in Immune System Gene Libraries
Experiments are reported which show that the evolution of immune system genes, simulated by the genetic algorithm, can induce a high degree of genetic organization even though that organization is not explicitly required by the tness function.
Immunization and aging : a learning process in the immune network.
Using a cellular automaton to simulate a real immune system, the model exhibits the experimentally observed refractory behavior of the immune system under multiple antigen presentations as well as loss of its plasticity caused by aging.
