Its use in modelling and analysing the spread of infectious disease in a population is well developed [13–16], as well as more general ‘infections’ such as the spread of computer viruses, information or opinions through various networks structures like word-of-mouth interactions or email correspondences [17–19].
INTRODUCTION — Prevention and control of methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is among the most important challenges of infection prevention. About 100,000 invasive MRSA infections occur annually, and the associated number of death is estimated to be 19,000 . Factors in transmission include colonization, impaired host defenses, and contact with skin or contaminated fomites [2,3]. Further study of S. aureus pathogenesis is important for prevention optimization.
A comprehensive review Amin Dadsepah Colorado State University Submitted in partial fulfilment of MIP MS-B degree Introduction With the invention of new anti-retroviral medications, regular screening tests and public awareness, new cases of HIV infections are declining.
The ‘infectious dose’ for influenza to cause an infection in the average non vaccinated person is about 800 virus So over 70% of flu infections are in people who are not unwell (these figures have been extrapolated from serology results), so they will not be coughing and although the virus will be in their respiratory secretions transmission is believed to be very low.
The clinical relevance of NTM respiratory infections significantly varies from patient to patient, and the interplay between exposure- and host-related factors is poorly understood .
Currently prevalence of HPV infections for high risk strains among young 33 women in Switzerland is unknown.
