  Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death by an infectious agent, and developing an effective vaccine is an important component of the WHO's EndTB Strategy. Non-human primate (NHP) models of vaccination are crucial to TB vaccine development and have informed design of subsequent human trials. However, challenges emerge when translating Cited by: 4. " The concept of the stationary ecological life-table has been applied to populations of the three main species of schistosomes affecting man. In such a system, the net reproductive rate should be equal to , with reproduction and mortality balancing each other. Calculations are made of net reproduction in both snail and mammal hosts and of the probabilities of transmission from Cited by:

Infectious diseases pose a great threat to human civilization and world economy. Therefore, constant efforts are being made to prevent their occurrence, recurrence and spread. There are certain infections which do not manifest themselves as definite symptoms in the infected host for a long period of time but can be highly lethal at the : Sutapa Biswas Majee, Gopa Roy Biswas. channels; that is, if we eradicate some diseases, others will become proportionally more fatal. In this case the only distinguishable cause is the damming up a necessary outlet of mortality.' This means that 'we should reprobate specific remedies for ravaging diseases; and those benevolent, but much mistaken.

This article addresses the recent use of mathematical epidemiological SIR or SEIR models in plague research. This use of S(E)IR models is highly problematic, but the problems are not presented and considered. Serious problems show in that such models are used to “prove” that historical plague was a (1) Filoviridae disease and (2) a bacterial disease caused by Author: Ole J. Benedictow. The object of a mathematical theory, or interpretation, of a biological experiment is to express the observed results as concisely as possible using the simplest hypothesis capable of providing a satisfactory reproduction of the data. One desires to do this because the mathematical expression will permit of inferences which may, in some cases, be tested by further planned experiment; Cited by:

The basic reproduction number (denoted by R 0) is a measure of how transferable a disease is. It is the average number of people that a single infectious person will infect over the course of their infection. This quantity determines whether the infection will spread exponentially, die out, or remain constant: if R 0 > 1, then each person on average infects more than one other person.

Actually, the merit of applying statistics to clinical medicine was evident from the outset.

InJohn Graunt published what has been called the first “recognisably demographic” account of population change in his study of Natural and Political Observations upon the Bills of Mortality,[1] and over the next years, the rise of numbers, and especially tables, became a staple part of the common currency of medical debate.
