    We formulate and study a general epidemic model allowing for an arbitrary distribution of susceptibility in the population. We derive the final-size equation which determines the attack rate of the epidemic, somewhat generalizing previous work. Our main aim is to use this equation to investigate...

    Previous studies have shown that host genetic heterogeneity in the response to infectious challenge can affect the emergence risk and the severity of diseases transmitted through direct contact between individuals. However, there is substantial uncertainty about the degree and direction of...

    Zoonoses are human diseases caused by animal pathogens or animal diseases that are transmissible to humans. Zoonotic pathogens identified are mostly viral origin and are emerging and reemerging. Zoonotic viral infections are grouped based on the type of infection they produce in natural host....

    The article examines epidemiological, evolutionary, social and ecologic perspectives into an integrative assessment of the factors influencing infectious disease emergence. The infectious disease emergence has been attributed alternately to changes in ecological conditions affecting transmission...

    The article discusses the epidemiology, clinical and histopathological findings, and the virological and bacteriological investigations results from the 2007 epidemic on seals. It suggests that the unknown pathogen was most likely a virus and that there is a risk that the disease may spread to...

    Infectious diseases are a global concern. The challenge for public health bodies relies upon optimizing the distribution of scarce or costly control measures to maximize their impact on the outbreak dynamics. Risk identification has focused on schools and child-care centers mainly because they...

    Tinea manuum is a common superficial fungal infection which is usually coexistent with tinea pedis; there are few studies available on the epidemiology of tinea manuum at present. This study aims to investigate the epidemiology of tinea manuum and its correlation with tinea pedis in south China....

    The article provides information on nocardiosis. Nocardiosis is also known as pulmonary nocardiosis and cutaneous nocardiosis. The disease is caused by three pathogenic species such as Nocardia asteroides, N. brasiliensis, and N. otitidiscaviarum. Furthermore, it is not a reportable disease and...
