Epidemiological model of acute bacterial and viral diarrheal diseases

, : Epidemiological model of acute bacterial and viral diarrheal diseases. Journal of Diarrhoeal Diseases Research 3(2): 65-72

A prototype of an epidemiological model on the dynamics of acute diarrhoeal diseases was constructed. The model is restricted to the common acute bacterial and viral diarrhoeas caused by enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) and rotavirus. The model was conceived as an epidemiological process, in which the population flowed among various epidemiological classes and was expressed in a system of equations. A suitable computer program was written, enabling simulation of the natural course of infections in endemic and epidemic situations. The model appears to be a useful tool for planning and evaluating control programs. However, further validation and refinement of the model, e.g. age structuring, adaptation to specific infections and possible incorporation of seasonality, is needed.

Screening of children and adolescents for hyperlipidemia is controversial. We performed a cholesterol surveillance study of 806 children aged between 6 and 14 years. The initial cholesterol screening test was done by finger stick in the non-fastin...

During object perception, the brain integrates simple features into representations of complex objects. A perceptual phenomenon known as visual crowding selectively interferes with this process. Here, we use crowding to characterize a neural corre...

During surveys carried out in the Chu-Iliyskaya Plain in Kirgizia, USSR, between 1971 and 1976, some 700 specimens of Rhinonyssid mites belonging to 27 species were collected from 2813 wild birds, which included some passerine species. Fifteen of...

The effect of short-term pulsatile LHRH administration was studied in 8 healthy subjects ranging from 60 to 81 yr to see if the decrease of pituitary gonadal function could be part due to changes in the discharge of LHRH from the hypothalamus. Gon...
