Drug dissemination strategy with an SEIR-based SUC model

Boyue Fang, Yutong Feng


According to the features of drug addiction, this paper constructs an SEIR-based SUC model to describe and predict the spread of drug addiction. Predictions are that the number of drug addictions will continue to fluctuate with reduced amplitude and eventually stabilize. To seek the fountainhead of heroin, we identified the most likely origins of drugs in Philadelphia, PA, Cuyahoga and Hamilton, OH, Jefferson, KY, Kanawha, WV, and Bedford, VA. Based on the facts, advised concentration includes the spread of Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Heroin, and Buprenorphine. In other words, drug transmission in the two states of Ohio and Pennsylvania require awareness. According to the propagation curve predicted by our model, the transfer of KY state is still in its early stage, while that of VA, WV is in the middle point, and OH, PA in its latter ones. As a result of this, the number of drug addictions in KY, OH, and VA is projected to increase in three years. For methodology, with the Principal component analysis technique, 22 variables in socio-economic data related to the continuous use of Opioid drugs was filtered, where the 'Relationship' Part deserves a highlight. Based on them, by using the K-means algorithm, 464 counties were categ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Spatio-Temporal Regulation of DNA Repair

DNA repair is a complex process regulated by several different classes of enzymes, including ligases, endonucleases, and polymerases. This feed focuses on the spatial and temporal regulation that accompanies DNA damage signaling and repair enzymes and processes.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures. Follow the latest research on Glut1 deficiency with this feed.

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is a type of anxiety disorder that involves excessive distress and anxiety with separation. This may include separation from places or people to which they have a strong emotional connection with. It often affects children more than adults. Here is the latest research on separation anxiety.

KIF1A Associated Neurological Disorder

KIF1A associated neurological disorder (KAND) is a rare neurodegenerative condition caused by mutations in the KIF1A gene. KAND may present with a wide range and severity of symptoms including stiff or weak leg muscles, low muscle tone, a lack of muscle coordination and balance, and intellectual disability. Find the latest research on KAND here.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds.
