AVIAN FLU: MODELING AND IMPLICATIONS FOR CONTROL
TLDR
It is found that should a pandemic strain emerge, it will invade, possibly displacing the human influenza virus in circulation at that time, and higher prevalence levels of human influenza will obstruct the invasion capabilities of the pandemic H5N1 strain.
Periodic culling outperforms isolation and vaccination strategies in controlling Influenza A H5N6 outbreaks in the Philippines
TLDR
It is shown that culling both infected and susceptible birds is a better control strategy in prohibiting an outbreak and avoiding further recurrence of the infection from the population compared to confinement and vaccination.
Erratum to: An avian-only Filippov model incorporating culling of both susceptible and infected birds in combating avian influenza
TLDR
The results suggest that the spread of avian influenza in bird populations is tolerable if the trajectories converge to the equilibrium point that lies in the region below the threshold level Ib or if they converge to one of the pseudoequilibria or a pseudo-attractor on the surface of discontinuity.
An avian-only Filippov model incorporating culling of both susceptible and infected birds in combating avian influenza
TLDR
A Filippov avian-only model with culling of susceptible and/or infected birds is introduced, suggesting that the spread of avian influenza in bird populations is tolerable if the trajectories converge to the equilibrium point that lies in the region below the threshold level.
Applications of Filippov's Method to Modelling Avian Influenza
TLDR
If appropriate tolerance thresholds are chosen such that all trajectories of the Filippov models are converging to an equilibrium point that lies in the region below the infected tolerance threshold or on the discontinuity surface, then no control strategy is necessary as the authors consider the outbreak is tolerable.
A Structured Avian Influenza Model with Imperfect Vaccination and Vaccine-Induced Asymptomatic Infection
TLDR
It is analytically and numerically demonstrated that vaccination can paradoxically increase the total number of infected, resulting in the “silent spread” of the disease.
Model Based Economic Assessment of Avian Influenza Vaccination in an All-in/All-out Housing System
TLDR
A dynamic predictive model for the progression of avian influenza in an all-in/all-out broiler housing system, accounting also for flock vaccination measures finds that for small flocks vaccination might not be able to prevent financial loss, whereas for larger flocks, flock vaccination can turn losses into profit.
Stability and bifurcation in epidemic models describing the transmission of toxoplasmosis in human and cat populations
A five‐dimensional ordinary differential equation model describing the transmission of Toxoplamosis gondii disease between human and cat populations is studied in this paper. Self‐diffusion modeling
Effective control measures considering spatial heterogeneity to mitigate the 2016–2017 avian influenza epidemic in the Republic of Korea
TLDR
A spatial-temporal compartmental model that incorporates the culling rate as a function of the reported farms and farm density in each town and suggests the best culling radius with respect to the local reproductive number in a targeted area.

Key strategies for reducing spread of avian influenza among commercial poultry holdings: lessons for transmission to humans
TLDR
A mathematical model based on stochastic farm-to-farm transmission that incorporates flock size and spatial contacts is presented that suggests an immediate depopulation of infected flocks following an accurate and quick diagnosis would have a greater impact than simply depopulating surrounding flocks.
Evolutionary Repercussions of Avian Culling on Host Resistance and Influenza Virulence
TLDR
The findings indicate that culling impedes the evolution of avian host resistance against influenza, and achieves a short-term benefit at the expense of long-term detriments: a more genetically susceptible host population, ultimately greater mortality, and elevated influenza virulence.
AN AVIAN INFLUENZA MODEL AND ITS FIT TO HUMAN AVIAN INFLUENZA CASES
TLDR
An ordinary differential equation model is used to describe the complex dynamics of the HPAI virus, which epidemiologically links a number of species in a multi-species community, and includes the wild bird population as a periodic source feeding infection to the coupled domestic bird-human system.
