A new mathematical modelling study has estimated the mortality rates of TB in the pediatric population, producing the first ever estimate for infants under 5 years of age.
The impact of climate change on infectious diseases in Europe has been assessed in the first large-scale study, with results suggesting the affects could be greater than previously thought.
Progression dynamics of Zika fever outbreak in El Salvador during 2015–2016: a mathematical modeling approach
In this research article the authors utilize mathematical modeling to investigate the effect of different parameters that affected mosquito-borne transmission of Zika virus during 2015–2016 outbreak in El Salvador.
Molecular modeling and structure–activity relationships for a series of benzimidazole derivatives as cruzain inhibitors
As part of the authors ongoing research efforts dedicated to the discovery of novel cruzain inhibitors, a series of benzimidazole derivatives was used to develop predictive 2D and 3D quantitative structure–activity relationship (QSAR) models.
Author, Khaled Barakat, argues that computational modeling has a great potential in directing hepatitis research, to understand the liver and to discover better and more effective treatments.
Researchers have utilized mathematical modelling to assess whether US goals for HIV transmission and incidence are possible, discovering a serious reduction is achievable if other key goals are met.
Researchers have applied concepts from financial mathematical models to help predict the evolution of HIV proteins with the hope this could improve vaccine design.
Environmental change, and a growing and more connected population will promote vector-borne disease risk further. In this opinion piece, the authors discuss the role of climate modeling in disease prediction and epidemiology.
Researchers have demonstrated that outbreaks of dengue virus have a local structure, and hope their findings on transmission patterns could lead to better targeted interventions.
A new mathematical model suggests that the development of a vaccine against HIV, even if it is only partially effective, could be hugely important for the elimination of HIV worldwide.
